Julian Prégardien - Schumann: Dichterliebe - Presto Classical

Exquisitely sung and imaginatively programmed, Prégardien’s second album for Alpha centres on the build-up to the Schumanns’ marriage in 1840, and accordingly conjures an atmosphere of jittery excitement and foreboding...the beating heart of the recital is a fierce, genuinely unsettling Dichterliebe, suggesting that the lighter Wagner roles might figure in Prégardien's future.
