Nacht und Träume takes its name from one of Schubert’s best-loved lieder, which is joined on the album by a further 10 of the composer’s songs.  All performed in orchestral versions by such masters as Berlioz, Liszt, Brahms, Strauss, Webern, Britten and Schubert himself, they are complemented by three choral numbers and an orchestral interlude. The singers are rising stars – German mezzo-soprano Wiebke Lehmkuhl and French tenor Stanislas de Barbeyrac – and Laurence Equilbey conducts two ensembles she founded: the Insula orchestra and the choir accentus.


...immediately one is struck by the high quality of Stanislas de Barbeyrac’s singing. His interpretations are sensitive and intelligent and his tenor is beautifully controlled – flexible but steely, plangent with bracing hints of the heroic, filling out excitingly in the big phrases of ‘Nacht und Träume’. Wiebke Lehmkuhl is hardly less fine, her mezzo wonderfully limpid and rich. ... the recorded sound is mellow and detailed, giving an excellent sense of both the voices and the vivid playing of the Insula Orchestra. Very warmly recommended.  Hugo Shirley
