Album: Beethoven/Berg/Haydn/Schoenberg, Ferne Geliebte - Gerhaher/Huber (Sony Classical)


Beethoven opens and closes this bold recital from Christian Gerhaher and Gerold Huber.

Between the An die ferne Geliebte and the Adelaide, we have Schoenberg's Das Buch der hängenden Gärten and Berg's Fünf Orchesterlieder – a Second Viennese School sandwich for Papa Haydn's Gothic Geistliches Lied. Gerhaher is an unrivalled lieder singer, and his partnership with Huber is a reproof to the one-night-stand recitals brokered by many record labels.
