Paul Turok
Turok’s Choice, June 2009

SCHUBERT, F.: Lied Edition 27 - Romantic Poets, Vol. 4 8.570067
SCHUBERT, F.: Lied Edition 30 - Poets of Sensibility, Vol. 6 8.570480
SCHUBERT, F.: Lied Edition 29 - Settings of Various Poets 8.570838

The complete Schubert songs, sparked by pianist Ulrich Eisenlohr, with young German singers and organized by types of poets (as was the 1816 edition of his songs) now contains Vol. 4 of settings of Romantic poets (8.570067) and Vol.6 of Poets of Sensibility (8.570480). A further volume, defying classification, is entitled Settings of Various Poets (8.570838), containing Adelwold und Emma, a text that sometimes nears doggerel, in a setting that takes nearly a half hour! It is surprisingly well sung by Ferdinand von Bothmer with Eisenlohr accompanying; the pianist also appears on Romantic Poets, with tenor Jan Kobow, who seems rather effete. The other disc features the fine baritone Florian Boesch and pianist Burkhard Kehring, who has appeared in the series before.
