LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN (1770-1827)
Selection of Lieder

Beethoven’s songs remain relatively little-known, so baritone Stephan Genz, a regular presence in Verbier, and pianist Kit Armstrong could well be taking the audience on a voyage of discovery. Reviewing Genz’s recording of Beethoven’s song cycle An die ferne Geliebte, Gramophone wrote: “This is quite simply one of the best performances currently available … Fresh and bright of tone, awe-filled and beautifully paced and scaled, Genz’s singing is modulated exquisitely from song to song.”
