About

Two highly regarded artists of the current classical scene, Christoph Prégardien and Cyprien Katsaris, join together for a unique project: a simple and effective programme which intertwines Lieder and piano transcriptions.

The album smoothly flows through a variety of moods and atmospheres creating a hugely pleasurable listening experience and features pieces by Schubert, Liszt, Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann, Clara Schumann, Wagner, Wolf, Brahms and Richard Strauss.

Precise vocal control, clear diction, intelligent musicality and an ability to get to the heart of everything he sings ensures Christoph Prégardien’s place among the world’s foremost lyric tenors.

Cyprien Katsaris, the French-Cypriot pianist and composer, is a graduate of the Paris Conservatoire where he studied piano with Aline van Barentzen and Monique de la Bruchollerie (piano First Prize, 1969), as well as chamber music with Rene Leroy and Jean Hubeau (First Prize, 1970), he won the International Young Interpreters Rostrum-UNESCO (Bratislava 1977), the First Prize in the International Cziffra Competition (Versailles 1974) and he was the only western- European prize-winner at the 1972 Queen Elisabeth of Belgium International Competition. He was also awarded the Albert Roussel Foundation Prize (Paris 1970) and the Alex de Vries Foundation Prize (Antwerp 1972).

“Following our first encounter on 7 June 2015 in Hamburg on the occasion of our concert with the Winterreise of Schubert, which proved to be a wonderful experience, and considering our perfect mutual understanding, I wondered whether Christoph Prégardien would be interested in a CD project. But what repertoire? Usually the Lieder aficionados are not interested in piano and pianophiles do not seem to be Lieder fans... Then I thought, how about bringing together those two categories of the human species? Suddenly... EUREKA! (Thank you, Archimedes!) The concept would be a combination of German Lieder, each of them followed by a piano transcription. Christoph Pregardien immediately agreed.” - Cyprien Katsaris
