ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK (1854-1921): Complete Lieder.
Catalogue Number: 12J073
Label: Oehms Classics
Reference: OC 807
Description: There are 73 songs in all, 44 of which do not belong to any cycle, making the listing of each title impossible for considerations of space. In the expected tradition of the German lied, these are tuneful, conservative works, rarely approaching three minutes in length, both strophic and through-composed and with a handful of instantly memorable items which you'll have trouble getting out of your head (try Am Rhein for a good example). The EDA recording we offered three months ago (09J048) has been unavailable from its distributor for over two months. You may want to give your attention to this set since it's complete. 2 CDs. German texts. Sibylla Rubens (soprano), Christine Müller (mezzo), Andreas Weller (tenor), Thomas Bauer (baritone), Uta Hielscher, Chia Chou (piano).
