Strauss, Lieder

The internationally acclaimed baritone Hermann Prey was born in Berlin in
1929. He made his breakthrough in 1956 as Figaro in the Vienna State
Opera's production of Rossini's "Barber of Seville". He has since Hermann
performed at all of the world's great opera houses and festivals. Hermann
Prey has always loved lieder, especially the works of Franz Schubert and
Robert Schumann. In spite of his many engagements on the opera stage or in
the concert hall, in the TV and recordings studios, Hermann Prey always
takes the time to pass his knowledge and experience on to younger
generations by giving master classes in lied singing all over the world.
In this selection of Strauss songs, Hermann Prey spans a broad arch from
Strauss's extensive romantic repertoire - for he also set to music poems
by Heinrich heine - to his early modern works. Accompanying him is the
renowned pianist Oleg Maisenberg.
