The beautiful lyric baritone of Matthias Goerne is, we hope, going to be around for a long time, especially when it makes possible recordings such as this. The young lieder artist gives outgoing, exceptionally engaging characterizations of these songs, supported by the wonderfully pointed pianism of Vladimir Ashkenazy. The 1997 recording is vivid and well balanced. --Ted Libbey

I had to join in this discussion! I came rather late to Goerne's singing, this being only the second disc of his that I heard, and my impression was of a ravishingly beautiful voice overwhelmed by raucous, percussive, at times downright amateurish playing. I studied "Dichterliebe" as part of A level music, and I can remember playing parts of it just as Ashkenazy does here - without tenderness, and without any special feeling for the rise and fall of Schumann's phrases.
I would love to ask Matthias Goerne why it is that he shops around for pianists so much, so early on in his career - does he feel that only the greatest pianists, already established as soloists, are good enough to play for him? Or is it simply that he is so wonderful (and, of course, he is) that pianists are queueing up to accompany him, and he, flattered, just takes them on? Perhaps it is simply the fact that there is just no pianist who can equal Goerne's singing - what a pity that there is no one around now to match Gerald Moore's poetic way of touching the piano - a way which would uniquely echo Goerne's own seriousness and sensitivity.
Listening to this voice, and loving it as I do, I have to simply absent myself mentally when the piano takes over - difficult, but if you like what Goerne does with the songs then there is no option. Fischer-Dieskau is wonderful in his own way but I don't find his voice as beguiling as Goerne's, at least not in this music, and whilst Ian Bostridge has many fine moments I don't care for his sometimes only-approximate German and his seeming desire to create the impression that he's singing this music for the first time.Read more ›
I bought this CD as I am currently learning and singing the Dichterliebe cycle. Having discussed this CD with my singing tutor, who studied at the Royal College of Music in London, we both came to the conclusion that this voice was beautiful and the interpretation very fine.
While I suppose it may not move you to tears it does have a great emotional impact, if MG does use a lower transposition for 'Ich grolle nicht' it is entirely forgiveable, as the high A of the original key is not really in the range of a baritone. As a tenor I find this leap hard and am thinking of following Goerne's example.
The Liederkreis is also very fine and certainly equals my favourite performance by Sir Peter Pears. Of course as a German his pronounciation is natural and accurate, although some times not entirely clear. Nevertheless if you're a newcomer or an expert in these beautiful songs this is a most satisfactory and beautiful recording.

In my review below I said that I didn't know of any recording of Schumann's Liederkreis op. 24 by Souzay. There is one, however, from 1956 with Dalton Baldwin at the piano. Read morePublished on April 24 2000 by Izolda
Herr M. Goerne has an interesting voice that no doubt is well-suited for any number of musical genres. Unfortunately, Lieder-singing does not appear to be one of them. Read morePublished on Sept. 9 1999
Goerne sings with wonderful clarity and expression and with perfect control. He leads you into every nuance of the music. The acclaim he is enjoying is well deserved. Read morePublished on Aug. 21 1999 by Christopher Smith
