Anna Prohaska - Paradise Lost - Presto Classical

Ranging from Purcell to Aribert Reimann, this eclectic programme exploring musical depictions of Eve has a wonderful and rather unexpected coherence when experienced in one sitting: Wolf seems to grow quite naturally out of Stravinsky, and the juxtaposition of Mahler and Crumb is a particularly intriguing one. Prohaska is especially gripping in the songs more usually associated with male singers, giving febrile, no-holds-barred accounts of Schubert’s Auflösung and Warte, warte, wilder Schiffmann from Schumann’s Op. 24 Liederkreis.
