Musicians Jürg Dähler, Gilles Vonsattel, and François Benda journey to the outer limits of what can be sung or heard in their new GENUIN Artist Consort release—for François Benda already his seventh CD in the splendid series! The disc brings together truly Romantic music by Robert Schumann and Györgi Kurtág along with the world premiere recording of Hans Ulrich Lehmann’s "without words", a commentary on Schumann’s Märchenbilder. The three artists bring out the composers' subtle strokes with incredible tenderness and boundless energy as we are alternately touched, inspired, and captivated—a window onto the world of fairy tales just the way E.T.A. Hoffmann could have imagined . . .
