'Every once in a while comes a disc so perfectly formed that we marvel at its existence. Here, we are graced with an exceptional interpretation of Schumann's song cycles by pianist Anna Tilbrook and tenor James Gilchrist.' McAlister Matheson Music  

Recommended Further Listening: For further examples from Schumann's miraculous 'year of song' of 1840, turn to his two Liederkreis cycles and Dichterliebe, performed by tenor James Gilchrist and pianist Anna Tilbrook. BBC Music Magazine

Moving away from English song into the core Germanic Lieder repertoire, James's expressive tenor voice is ideally suited to showcase the emotional nuances of Schumann's vocal writing. Liederkreis shows Schumann at his most lyrical and deeply romantic; incredibly Op. 24 was his first published vocal composition. Dichterliebe, Schumann's best-known song cycle, is regarded as one of the finest in the German language, notable for its perfect pairing of Heinrich Heine's poetry with Schumann's music.

'James Gilchrist is a very fine exponent of these songs and Anna Tilbrook offers distinguished playing. I enjoyed their performances very much and, more than that, there were many passages that I found moving.'

BBC Music Magazine
4 Stars
'Tenor James Gilchrist and pianist Anna Tilbrook allow each cycle to unfold naturally, minutely adjusting the spaces between certain songs to allow the ear to absorb what it has just heard...If Gilchrist and Tilbrook have waited a long time to record these works, their perspective on Dichterliebe, poignant, reflective and weather-worn, has only deepened.'


The Washington Post
'Gilchrist [is] such a successful Schumann interpreter...Few of us would have the stamina to relive the ups and downs of young love, but hearing its evocation in these beautiful songs superbly performed is a tantalizing reminder.'
