PERFORMER: Boje Skovhus (baritone)Helmut Deutsch (piano)
CATALOGUE NO: SK 57969 DDD
The young Danish baritone offers all of Wolf’s Eichendorff lieder, except the two specifically women’s songs, plus five others which Wolf did not include in his original published collection. There are also four Eichendorff settings by Korngold. Skovhus and Sony may wish they had waited just a little while for his voice to expand and settle with total ease of technique and control throughout his stunning range. However, Skovhus delivers a fascinating performance. Elise McDougall
