Murrihy, Paula; Blaich, Tanya

Internationally acclaimed Irish soprano Paula Murrihy and American pianist Tanya Blaich take the listener on a journey through the ups and downs of love in this irresistible song recital. Each set of songs shares the theme of love, and in style most are either based on folk music or possess a folk-like quality. The album begins with Brahms, whose love of folk song infuses this selection of his songs, followed by Lieder from Mahler’s famous settings of folk poetry, Des Knaben Wunderhorn. Murrihy and Blaich then take us to France, in Debussy’s sensuous Chansons de Bilitis, and to Norway, in Grieg’s tributes to his wife, Nina: the Sechs Lieder, Op.48. The recital concludes with folk songs from Murrihy’s native Ireland, including a song from Dublin arranged by Herbert Hughes and from which the album takes its name: I Will Walk with my Love.
