Schubert: Winterreise D. 911

On their second duo album, baritone Thomas Oliemans and pianist Paolo Giacometti record the most celebrated of all Lied repertoire: Franz Schubert’s Winterreise.

“When I was a child, a number of volumes in my father’s bookcase, too thick and doubtlessly too difficult for me, already exercised an irresistible attraction. They cried out to me from the shelf: intriguing titles which promised a magic mountain, something about a hundred years, loneliness and searching for lost time. I started to read many of them too early, I got through some with goose flesh, while others forced me to throw in the towel in despair.

In music I had a predilection for heavy symphonies, huge gestures and extensive forms, and I hunted down repertoire and sound worlds that were new to me. (…) In my hunger to discover repertoire as yet unknown to me, one day I came across ‘Winterreise’ in the first volume of the Peters edition of Schubert songs. The title intrigued me straightaway, just as much as those books, but it seemed equally unapproachable. (…) As each year passes it has become a work to turn back to again, to measure myself against, to immerse myself in; what is more, as soon as thehurdy-gurdy man has turned his handle for the last time, it seems to invite me to open the score once more at page one and try yet again to conquer this magic mountain of the lied repertoire.”
(excerpts from liner notes)
