Mark Padmore & Paul Lewis
“Two deeply thoughtful artists pushing each other ever onwards.” - Gramophone

Brahms: Sechs Lieder [Selection]
Mahler: Rückert Lieder
Schumann: Dichterliebe, Op. 48

The art song “dream team” (New York Times) of tenor Mark Padmore and pianist Paul Lewis present settings of the German Romantic literary giant Heinrich Heine by two of his contemporaries. Schumann wrote the miraculous Liederkreis and Dichterliebe within the same month during his astounding “year of song.” Padmore and Lewis bring these mood portraits to life next to Brahms’s lyrical settings full of tumultuous passion..
