The blossoming of German Lied is on full display in gorgeous songs that span Mozart to Schubert. An Italianate vocal line flows elegantly through Mozart’s “Abendempfindung” and Beethoven’s popular “Adelaide,” while Mendelssohn’s “Neue Liebe”—with its vivid depiction of frolicking elves—is quintessentially Romantic. Schubert’s supremacy in the Lied is revealed in a selection of songs that range from the powerful drama of “Der Atlas” and “Erlkönig,” to the eerie calm of “Der Doppelgänger,” to the consoling Wanderers Nachtlied II.
