Collaborators for a number of years, Philippe Sly and John Charles Britton see these Schubert Sessions as a way to broaden and heighten Schuberts place in popular culture, in particular in terms of his influence on modern popular song. The recording also fulfills a need to revisit these lyric masterpieces in a form that emphasizes not only their idiom (many of these pieces, including Wohin? and Auf dem Wasser zu singen, exhibit writing that is more guitaristic than pianistic) but their polymorphic essence. A seemingly simple task, yet a daring one: to present, in its most natural form, a collection of pieces whose expressiveness allows them to fly free of basic principles, or to avoid a certain dogmatism fictional or real present in the world of classical music.

"Philip Sly possesses a fine, velvet bass-baritone voice, clear diction and splendid, true intonation." - Gramophone magazine, 2014
