Schubert Nacht & Träume Lieder with orchestra
3 Nov 2017
Composer: Franz Schubert
Other participants: Wiebke Lehmkuhl, Stanislas de Barbeyrac, accentus, Insula orchestra
Nacht und Träume takes its name from one of Schubert’s best-loved lieder, which is joined on the album by a further 10 of the composer’s songs. All performed in orchestral versions by such masters as Berlioz, Liszt, Brahms, Strauss, Webern, Britten and Schubert himself, they are complemented by three choral numbers and an orchestral interlude. The singers are rising stars – German mezzo-soprano Wiebke Lehmkuhl and French tenor Stanislas de Barbeyrac – and Laurence Equilbey conducts two ensembles she founded: the Insula orchestra and the choir accentus.
