GOERNE LISIECKI

In 2020, the world celebrates the 250th anniversary of one of the greatest composers of all time Ludwig van Beethoven! Acclaimed Lied singer Matthias Goerne is joined by pianist and DG exclusive artist Jan Lisiecki for a remarkable Beethoven recital. Though often eclipsed by his other compositions , Beethoven’s Lieder (songs) are among his most intimate, poetic creations. This recording features 14 Lieder including two cycles: the "6 Lieder op. 48" and Beethoven's most famous song “An die ferne Geliebte op. 98” (To the distant beloved) Following Jan Lisiecki’s celebrated Beethoven Concertos he is destined for Beethoven‘s unrightfully underrated songs. The Globe and Mail (Canada) wrote: Jan Lisiecki “revels in romantic sounds, while taking listeners on a playful musical journey”
