Christine Schafer, Erich Schneider

The third of nine Radio 3 Lunchtime Concerts recorded at the 2011 Schwetzingen Festival.

Every Summer the 250-year-old castle of Schwetzingen, just outside the German city of Heidelberg, plays host to a music festival. The stars of today and, hopefully, tomorrow take part - as they have done since the festival began in 1952.
German soprano Christine Schäfer is famous for her versatility and the intensity of her music-making. With regular recital partner, pianist Erich Schneider, she explores German song repertoire from three centuries.
