Description
"It has been a long time since anything moved me so much as this union of words and music," was Clara Schumann's response on hearing her husband Robert's ultra-Romantic Requiem for Mignon, written to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Goethe's birth. This 1999 live recording also includes Felix Mendelssohn's orchestral overture Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage.

"The star … is alto soloist Barbara Hölzl, whose unearthly low sounds and excellent control over the work's structural intricacies result in a memorable performance of the Brahms Rhapsodie für eine Altstimme, Männerchor und Orchester, otherwise known as the Alto Rhapsody…. The Mendelssohn setting of Die erste Walpurgisnacht, a poem about some Druids who cook up a ruse to foil Christian prohibitions against their rituals, is a delight and is well worth hearing against the background of both the composer's and the aging poet's religious backgrounds. This is a recording that gives listeners a lot to chew on, in the best way…. Strongly recommended for anyone who has ever tried to get a grip on Goethe's writing."—Classical Review
