When one thinks of Richard Wagner, it is easy to imagine the passion, the soaring melodies and the sheer power of the music written by this revolutionary in the world of 19th-century opera. But the fact is that Wagner could also portray these elements on a much smaller scale and was adept at capturing the more intimate subtleties of the genre known as the Lied. This special collection brings together Wagner’s works for voice and piano.
Among the works that appear in the collection are the Wesendonck-Lieder – a setting of five poems by Mathilde Wesendonck – two of which, ‘Träume’ and ‘Im Treibhaus’, Wagner describes as studies for Tristan and Isolde, one of his most celebrated operas. These five lieder combine a use of chromaticism, expression and restless, wave-like phrases that have come to be associated with much of the composer’s oeuvre. The disc also boasts an Italian version of the work, with text by Arrigo Boito. Also appearing in the collection are the famed ‘Gretchen am Spinnrade’ and ‘Melodram’ – the final two works of the Sieben Compositionen zu Goethes Faust – the complex ‘Dors, mon enfant’ and further works with texts by writers such as Victor Hugo, Georg Sheurlin and Pierre de Ronsard. Each of these works showcases Wagner’s immense talent at the portrayal of emotion through song.
Praised by the New York Times as being ‘a fine dramatic soprano’, Michela Sburlati is a critically acclaimed singer who has performed in operas all over the world. Recent engagements include the role of Chrysothemis in Richard Strauss’s Elektra (Erl Festival, Austria) and the title role in Tosca at the Kazan Opera (Russia). She won the ‘Poggi’ Award as critics’ and audience’s choice in 2011, teaches lyric singing at the Conservatoire in Perugia and collaborates with the Lyric Opera Centre in Shanghai. Sburlati is accompanied by renowned pianist Marco Scolastra.
