Catalogue Number: 04T054
Description: What connects this recital of 20th century Lieder is the saatirical and often scabrous material of their texts, Strauss grinding his thumb into the eyes of his much-despised publisher with a contacturally obligated cycle, Schoenberg exploring the demi-monde of the turn-of-the-century German cabaret scene and Hessenberg dealing with the incorrigabliity of human beings in his nine-piece “Songs of a Scamp” of 1950. No texts. Gerhard Siegel (tenor), Gabriel Dobner (piano).
