Peter Cornelius thought of himself as a ‘Poet-Musician’ and almost all of his mature compositions were vocal. His early attachment to the New German school of Liszt and Wagner was strong but his songs, almost half of which were written in Weimar, retain a very personal quality. A gifted poet, he set a number of his own lyrics. With their colourful piano accompaniments, his songs possess economy, atmosphere and show an interest in cyclical writing. Whether mournful or, in the Rhenish Songs, exuberantly outgoing, they reveal his imaginative command of the medium. This is the first volume of Cornelius’ complete Lieder.


"...The performances here are strong and convincing. Landshamer sings 12 songs, Schafer sings 14 and Hausmann sings four. All three singers have lyrical, mellifluous voices well suited to lieder. Schafer is particularly appealing and demonstrates superb application of dynamics and vocal modulation. Their readings illuminate the texts ... Veit’s accompaniment is secure and ensures accordant performances; he displays deft handling of the more virtuosic writing in Three Songs and the four Rhenish Songs with their rhythmic peculiarities..."

R Moore - American Record Guide - January/February 2014


"...Altogether a delightful revelation."
