 Recording of the Week, Schubert's Schwanengesang from Padmore and Lewis

Padmore’s bright, light tenor is often hauntingly beautiful in Schubert’s ‘swan-song’, combining with Lewis’s imaginative and insightful playing in a performance of great musical integrity which is a worthy successor to their superb Winterreise and Schöne Müllerin.

 Recording of the Week, Robert Schumann

Piotr Anderszewski pays homage to the composer’s 200th birthday with three relatively rare piano works, whilst Mark Padmore and Kristian Bezuidenhout (performing on an 1837 Érard) bring clarity and crispness to Dichterliebe.
