Susanne Bernhard, Soprano & Harald Feller, Organ
Works by Richard Wagner and Franz Liszt (arr. for Soprano and Organ)
The two great topics of humanity, love and death, are closely related to each other in a mysterious way. Many important artists have dealt with them in their works. With his opera "Tristan and Isolde" and the closely related "Wesendonck Lieder", Wagner created a particularly impressive example of this. Liszt, who had a very close relationship with Wagner and also inspired him artistically, gave this topic his own moving expression in the two symphonic poems "Orpheus" and "Von der Wiege bis zum Grabe" ("From the cradle to the grave") as well as in the lieder "Ich möchte hingehn" ("I would like to pass on"), filled with the longing for death, and "O lieb" ("O love").
The two composers of the works recorded here, Franz Liszt and Richard Wagner, are closely connected both in terms of music history and personally.
The unusual instrumentation of soprano & organ by the great artists Susanne Bernhard and Harald Feller makes this music shine in a different and fascinating new light.
