About

Ever since his debut in 2005 with Berg's 'Wozzeck' (concertante) with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Daniel Harding has regularly attracted public attention with spectacular concerts.

With the 'Faust Scenes' by Robert Schumann – Daniel Harding's first recording on the BR-KLASSIK label – the conductor presents us with a work that until now had long been on the fringes of the repertoire, Schumann having primarily attracted attention as a composer of lieder, piano works and chamber music.

The exceptional baritone Christian Gerhaher succeeds, perhaps more than any others, in credibly and forcefully conveying the sheer diversity of expression in Goethe's literature here, and makes full use of his expertise as a profound lieder performer.

He is joined by Christiane Karg as Gretchen, together with further internationally renowned soloists, the Chamber Choir of Augsburg Cathedral Boys' Choir and the Bavarian Radio Choir.

Live Recording, Herkulessaal Munich, January 2013.
