ArtistsHans-Jörg Mammel (tenor)
Arthur Schoonderwoerd (fortepiano)
Schubert sang to his friends "a cycle of horrible songs", which he said had "affected him more than all those he had composed before". Schubert worked on the cycle with great concentration, but he was forced to make a number of changes under pressure from the publisher; hence several lieder were transposed into different keys to make the set easier to sell.
The German tenor Hans Jörg Mammel and Arthur Schoonderwoerd, in this new recording for Alpha, have stuck strictly to the tonal scheme of the autograph, which means all the lieder are sung for the first time in the keys initially planned by Schubert.
