LSO St Luke's Schumann + 1 Series
The first in a series of concerts featuring Schumann song cycles recorded recently at LSO St Luke's. Today John Mark Ainsley and Roger Vignoles perform perhaps the most famous, the psychologically complex "Dichterliebe". Also on the programme are Beethoven's love song to "Adelaide" and the first ever song cycle by a major composer - "An die ferne Geliebte", which reflects the pain of separation.
