Matthias Goerne’s first two Lieder albums for DG, recorded with Jan Lisiecki and Seong-Jin Cho respectively, earned rave reviews and multiple awards. The world-renowned German baritone now brings his planned trilogy to a close in collaboration with Daniil Trifonov. Their programme contains visionary meditations on the meaning of life and death, as expressed in song by Schumann, Brahms, Wolf, Berg and Shostakovich. This album, set for release on 10 June 2022, finds two artists at the height of their powers in works that expose the heart of the human condition.
The second pre-release track is Brahms' ‘Denn es gehet dem Menschen wie dem Vieh’. Listen now via the streaming tab above.
