Description

Gelebte Lieder (Living Songs) (CD)

When asked to think of the classic Lied composer who set Goethe’s texts to music, the name Schubert immediately comes to mind. The ‘prince of poets’, however, preferred a different artist: Johann Friedrich Reichardt (1752-1814), a stylistic chameleon who was renowned especially for his Lieder. In Reichardt’s oeuvre the poetic text retains absolute priority.

Musically he is indebted to the Baroque yet points far into the Romantic future, evoking comparisons with, for example, Mendelssohn. Set off on a journey into the far-flung and almost unchartered territory of the Classical Lied.
