Description: The notes for this release are a model of how to do it: separate sections on each of the songs themselves and the composer’s stylistic progression (all is tonal and melodic though) and a separate biography of a most interesting man and his career (Orff and Furtwängler were among his students). His Shakespeare settings of 1906 turn the first six sonnets into a cycle of the several stages of falling in love while the final four deal with considerations of death; his contemporaries considered it a work that would stand the test of time. German texts. Angelika Huber (soprano), Kilian Sprau (piano).
