Gerald Finley & Julius Drake - Schumann: Dichterliebe & Other Heine Settings

"Grotesquerie, beauty, irony, sentimentality and overwhelming passion mingle to breathtaking effect in Canadian bass-baritone Gerald Finley's all-Schumann disc Dichterliebe & Other Heine Settings (Hyperion)."--Warwick Thompson,

"In a very competitive field, Mr. Finley rises to the top for those who want to hear a baritone who doesn't boom or snarl in this gorgeous music."--Lawson Taitte, Dallas News

". . . this new recording of Dichterliebe, coupled with a selection of Schumann's other Heine settings, represents a master class of nuanced Lieder performance, Finley's intelligent and minutely detailed singing matched by Drake's infinitely responsive accompaniment."--Hugo Shirley,

" . . . Gerald Finley . . . finds the right balance between joy and despair in Robert Schumann's poignant song cycle about remembered love, 'Dichterliebe' ('Poet's Love'). Finley . . . has a burnished voice that enjoys dark, sardonic moods. But it's also youthful and expressive enough to suggest hope and confidence. Romantic song cycles are all about story, and Finley's gripping voice takes us along." -- David Stabler, The Oregonian,
