Overview

Vol. 9 in Graham Johnson's survey of the complete songs of Robert Schumann continues the extraordinarily high standards of previous volumes. The focus of this volume is on Schumann's music for children and it is Johnson's premise to mix pieces from his "Lieder-Album für die Jugend," a collection of solo songs and duets for women's voice and piano, with pieces from "Klavieralbum für die Jugend," a collection of works for solo piano. As premises go, this one works wonderfully well: the songs are delightful, the piano pieces are charming, and the combination is as enchanting as a July afternoon at the beach. Sopranos Felicity Lott and Ann Murray have sweetly dulcet voices individually and together they are divine. As always, Johnson is a superior accompanist, but as the selections from the "Klavieralbum" reveal, he is also a superlative soloist with the same deft touch and alert rhythm informing every bar of his playing. Along with Johnson's witty and informative program notes, this is another disc that all lovers of lieder will not want to be without. Hyperion's sound is clear and vivid and real, particularly in the duets.
