Andrè Schuen releases his debut album on DG after signing as an exclusive artist 2020. Together with his partner pianist Daniel Heide, he performs Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin. Andrè and Daniel have been performing together since Andrè’s early twenties, next to their stellar musical performance they are sparking with enthusiasm and wit in conversation with each other and the audience.
Schubert’s song cycle Die schöne Müllerin, written almost two hundred years ago, is one of the supreme tests of the lieder singer’s art. The duo brings to life the story of a young miller who wanders the countryside in search of work and sees his carefree world transformed within the course of the song cycle.
“By recording it now, while I’m relatively young, I can still bring many light colors to the music as well. The piece makes no sense to me without them.”
