Overview

Crystal Tears [CD+DVD]

For his latest recital, superstar countertenor Andreas Scholl has culled together a sublime sampling of lute songs and consort songs by the greatest Elizabethan "poet of melancholy" – John Dowland. His music forms the bulk of this generous program, which deftly alternates vocal gems and instrumental pieces by William Byrd, John Ward, Robert Johnson, Patrick Mando, Alfonso Ferrabosco II, Richard Mico and by the doleful master himself. Around him, Scholl has gathered his favorite partners in the service of this transcendent vocal art, stylishly distilling its fragile instants of grace: lutenist Julian Behr and the Swiss-based quartet, Concerto di Viole. The elegant double digipac includes a bonus DVD featuring a video of Track 11, John Bennet's Venus' birds whose mournful tunes and the documentary Beyond the Microphones -- Nayo Titzin's look at the making of this recording.

This is a counter tenor that knows what he is doing. He gets into the music showing an understanding of it that eludes most artists. The DVD was quite interesting and illuminating. Dowland's music is marvelous and it takes a real understanding of it to do it. I compare this to Sting's rather tame and amateurish effort with music of this type.This music must be done with feeling and touch. To do that takes work and intelligence. Scholl is marvelous.
