The Lieder of Wolfgang Rihm is one of the most significant bodies of new vocal music to emante from Europe in the last forty years. Here sung with enormous sensitivity and expression by Clare Lesser, this is an important recital for all connoisseurs of art-song.
“...scrupulous selection of vocal works from the 1980s and 1990s”
“[Rihm’s] austerity is matched by the focused singing of Clare Lesser… She is commendably sparing of vibrato Rapport is of the closest, with Metier’s recording and production exemplary.”
