Schubert: Complete Songs, Vol. 16

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
First the good news: the music is by Schubert, the lyrics are by Schiller, the singing is by Thomas Allan, and the accompaniment is by Graham Johnson. Now the bad news: there are not one but two interminable and almost unlistenable ballades included in this program of otherwise wonderful songs. So while most of the songs in this volume of Johnson's Schubert edition are magnificent fusions of words and music -- songs with the longing of "Laura am Klavier D. 388" or the sweetness of "Der Jüngling am Bache D. 638," or the joy of "An di Freude D. 189," or the unappeasable yearning of "Sehnsucht D. 52" -- and while most of the performances are powerfully and passionately sung ...

But while between them they account for nearly half the playing time of the disc, they are still as well performed as is imaginable as is the rest of the really good music on the disc, resulting in a disc still up to the high standards of the Schubert edition. And besides, any disc with a 42-page program book as well-written and entertaining as this is automatically worth getting.
