LSO St Luke's Schumann + 1 Series
Ailish Tynan (soprano)
Iain Burnside (piano)
The next in a four-part series featuring Schumann song cycles, recorded recently at LSO St Luke's. Today Alish Tynan and Iain Burnside perform "Liederkreis", with texts by the poet Joseph von Eichendorff. Schumann wrote to his then fiancee Clara Wieck, "The Eichendorff cycle is my most Romantic music ever, and contains much of you in it."
Also on today's programme, music from another prolific composer of lieder, Mendelssohn.
Mendelssohn: There be none of Beauty's daughters; Sun of the sleepless
Schumann: Liederkreis op 39
Mendelssohn: Der Blumenkranz; Neue Liebe; Scheidend; Wanderlied; Nachtlied
