Description

Song literature, and particularly the romantic song literature, has been my delight and inspiration from a very early age, when I began my singing career as a boy soprano. Later on during my studies, when I worked on the song cycles of Robert Schumann, this fascination became stronger. His songs, with their longing, their deep and sincere emotions, their strong sense of nature, and their burning passion — the purest form of Romantic music– drew me irresistibly. For me, the art song, and particularly that of Schumann, is the musical form which allows the singer and his personality the greatest opportunities of expression. If, in the opera, we are confronted with a designated, concrete role, which we are intended to realize on stage with the help of costumes and makeup, the song is inherently a more intimate form, which puts more value on of the individuality and spontaneous ideas of the singer.

Press reviews

Luister

(…) kernachtig van toon, arm aan vibrato, rijk aan aandrukking, en vooral dienstbaar aan het gezongene (…) Volkskrant (…) bijzonder fraaie, edele en vloeiend klinkende bariton. (…)

Haarlems Dagblad

(…) Reinild Mees leidt de bariton met zachte hand door de verschillende passies en emoties heen. (…) (…) Een kleinood.

Fanfare

(…) Kupfer instantly commands attention as a performer of assurance and individual expression (…) (…) He never loses sight of the forest for the trees; the general sense of a song is always well projected (…)

Blitz

(…) Kupfers intelligente gestaltung gleitet niemals in Manierriertheit ab. (…) (…) die hollndische Pianistin Reinild Mees ermglicht durch ihr differenziertes spiel eine homogene Balance mit dem Interpreten.

Gramophone

(…) a Lieder singer of uncommon gifts. American Record Guide A highly gifted and intelligent singer (…) one of the most satisfying, finely executed discs of Schumann interpretation ever to come my way.
