Schumann’s talismanic song-cycle Dichterliebe has been recomposed by German composer and conductor Christian Jost. The results can be heard on an album from Deutsche Grammophon, which pairs the new score with recordings of Schumann’s Dichterliebe and the Liederkreis Op. 39 made by Jost’s wife, mezzo-soprano Stella Doufexis, a year before her tragic death from cancer. Jost’s reimagined Dichterliebe, performed by tenor Peter Lodahl and the Horenstein Ensemble, casts new light on the shifting moods of Schumann’s composition. The new composition is commissioned by the Konzerthaus Berlin and the Copenhagen Opera Festival. It premiered in Berlin in October 2017.
