Description

"If I were condemned to hear only one voice for the remainder of my life I think it might well be hers. If I wanted to be charmed, to laugh or cry I would find her the perfect companion. In her singing we hear someone whose every utterance bespeaks natural sincerity and truthful feeling" - Alan Blyth on Irmgard Seefried (Gramophone). Issued over eleven single-disc volumes, Deutsche Grammophon / Eloquence pays tribute to Irmgard Seefried, bringing back to circulation several recordings that have never previously been issued on CD. The music ranges through opera and oratorio, with an especially generous offering of art song from a range of composers, including Schubert, Schumann, Wolf, Hindemith and Egk. The notes for the series have been written by that leading connoisseur of the voice, Richard Wigmore. Seefried's radiance and imaginative strength also made her a cherishable Lieder singer over an enterprisingly broad repertoire. Like her colleague Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, she championed the songs of Mozart at a time when only the merest handful were regularly heard in recital. Her 1957 recording of ten songs with her pianist of choice, Erik Werba, was widely hailed for its natural grace and simple sincerity of feeling. Recorded 'live' in Munich, Bielefeld, Berlin and Hamburg, this LP forms a fitting pair to the 1957 Mozart recordings.
