Coviello Classics 2017

Without doubt, Franz Schubert's „Winter Journey“ ('Winterreise') ist one of the highlights of romantic german „Lied“. With its complexity and variety of expression it surely is a milestone for every performer. The human feelings – hope, disappointment, grief, pain, doubt, joy, longing – by which the protagonist is moved and which are beautifully translated into music, turn this song-cycle into a very special musical cosmos of timeless truth. Gregor Meyer treaded yet unknown paths by creating this revised version: solo baritone and piano are accompanied and supported by a choir part – diverse and densely woven. The result of the cooperation is a refreshing version of this classic, which opens new perspectives and options for interpreting lyrics and music from a different angle. Daniel Ochoa (baritone) and Christian Peix (piano) know to explore these options along with Vocalconsort Leipzig.
