Elīna Garanča: Schumann & Brahms Lieder

In this DG Stage concert the spotlight falls on Elīna Garanča, one of today’s most eminent singers. The Latvian mezzo will perform Schumann’s Frauenliebe und Leben song cycle and a selection of Brahms Lieder – together with the acclaimed pianist Malcolm Martineau.

Elīna Garanča has been captivating audiences in the world’s most prestigious concert halls for years with well-chosen programmes of art songs by composers ranging from Schubert and Schumann to Richard Strauss, Rachmaninov and her compatriot Raimonds Pauls. Only now, however, has she added to her already extensive Deutsche Grammophon discography an album documenting her exceptional skill in this genre and her ability to convey every nuance of both music and text.

She recorded Schumann’s Frauenliebe und Leben song cycle and a selection of Brahms Lieder for her first recital album that will come out in November 2020 and can already be pre-ordered here. The repertoire from the new album, recorded at the famous Berlin Meistersaal, forms the basis of the DG Stage concert presented here.
