CHRISTOPH PREGARDIEN ANDREAS STAIER MICHAEL GEES
Is this an homage to Schubert? Or just to a leading Lieder tenor of our time? This release is probably both and it represents a clear reference for anyone who is a seasoned Lieder lover or a neophyte wanting to approach this genre. Christoph Pregardien has been through the last two decades one of the most important and interesting voices confronting this engaging repertoire. He has taken an innovative approach in the history of interpretation, a way of singing that is linked to his consolidated experience as a Baroque tenor. When these albums were originally issued they were met with unanimous acclaim from critics and consumers. They immediately turned up to be reference versions of each cycle.
