Matthias Goerne, baritone with Daniil Trifonov, piano & Musicians of the New York Philharmonic

“A masterly singer endowed with an opulent baritone that includes a silky, cellolike high register and penetrating depths … ” — The New York Times

“Few artists have burst onto the classical music scene in recent years with the incandescence of pianist Daniil Trifonov.” — The New York Times

The masterful baritone Matthias Goerne collaborates with mesmerizing pianist Daniil Trifonov on selected German lieder before being joined by members of the New York Philharmonic in a performance of Hanns Eisler’s Ernste Gesänge (Serious Songs), a piece in which “Goerne colors every word with insight and intensity” (BBC Magazine). Eisler said about this cycle, completed shortly before his death in 1962, “it is consciousness — reflection — depression — revival and again consciousness...one must describe the up and down of…actual situations, sing about them and comment on them.” The listener may find more than a few similarities between the situations on which Eisler commented and those of our current age. Members of the Philharmonic are then joined by Trifonov in Johannes Brahms’ songful B Major piano trio.
