This live recording from last year’s Lehár Festival in Bad Ischl brings together Alban Berg’s Seven Early Songs, Richard Strauss’s Mädchenblumenlieder, and Arnold Schoenberg’s Brettl-Lieder in a musico-dramatic overview of song artistry from the fin de siècle. Our interpreters are the soprano Maya Boog and the pianist Michael Lakner, the director of the Lehár Festival. Filled with scintillating and sultry sensuality (Berg and Strauss), the songs reflect fulfilled and unfulfilled yearnings and erotic desires in what are sometimes frivolous presentations (Schoenberg) of cabaret design.
