Anne Schwanewilms Soprano
Malcolm Martineau Piano
Songs by Debussy, Wolf and Strauss
German lyric soprano Anne Schwanewilms is one of today’s finest opera singers, and her imaginative insight, dramatic flair and lustrous tone are equally apparent in her bewitching song recitals.
Joined by Malcolm Martineau, she performs a selection from Hugo Wolf’s settings of highly charged poems by Eduard Mörike, each one a miniature drama of expressive intensity and harmonic sophistication. She also takes on three of Richard Strauss’s joyful Opus 49 songs, and the ethereal symbolism of Debussy’s contemplative early Proses lyriques.
