Brahms: German Folksongs
Hermann Prey - Baritone, Pamela Coburn - Soprano, Geoffrey Parsons - Piano
Brahms did not give these works an opus number, as he didn’t regard himself as the author of these miniatures for voice and piano. He wanted to popularize melodies that had hitherto been neglected. He said of these works “It is the first time that I regard with tenderness that, which I have produced”.
A wonderful cycle of Brahms lieder, with world-class singers!
