Cleverly Selected

Eighteenth
century lied -
recommended by
the late HOWARD SMITH

'... lucid, expressive variety.'

Beethoven / Haydn / Mozart - Padmore, Bezuidenhout. © 2015 harmonia mundi usa

Here is a cleverly selected programme of 15 eighteenth century lied: three each by Haydn (1732-1809) and Mozart (1756-1791) and nine from Beethoven (1770-1827). All songs are performed by Mark Padmore, accompanied on the fortepiano by Kristian Bezuidenhout.

The breadth of theme, emotion and musical expression is quite extraordinary. Compare Ein Selbstgespräch, WoO 114 with Resignation WoO 149...
