  • Roderick Williams baritone
  • Helmut Deutsch piano

Described by Opera magazine as ‘Britain’s best baritone’, London-born Roderick Williams and leading pianist Helmut Deutsch perform an atmospheric Liederabend, featuring some of the most inspiring German songs of the 19th century.

Immersing himself in the great range of moods portrayed through his programme, from the celebratory outpouring of praise in Wolf’s Gesegnet sei, durch den die Welt entstund to the sorrowful resignation to heartbreak in Schumann’s Alte Leute, Williams’s dramatic narrations are emotionally engaging throughout. Complemented by Deutsch’s superlative pianism, this recording is unforgettably poignant – a ‘must have’ for lovers of Lieder.
