Overview

It would be difficult to overpraise this issue given its manifold revelations concerning the setting of Heine’s poetry by Schumann. Bostridge makes one think anew about the music in hand, interpreting all these songs as much through the mind of the poet as that of the composer and, being youthful himself, getting inside the head of the vulnerable poet in his many moods; to put it another way, he demands that we hear the songs as though at the moment of creation. That, quite apart from his obvious gifts as a singer and musician, is what raises Bostridge above most of his contemporaries who so often fail to live the words they are singing.
