Franz Schubert. “ Winterreise “H. J. Mammel, A. Schoonderwoerd (Alpha)
In records of the most known song cycle of Schubert, it “ the Winter way “ the lack is not present. The reason, it appears, not only in popularity “ the Winter way “ but also in appreciable diligence of separate executors to present shubertovskie songs it is perfect on - new, being guided by noble desire to clear quiveringly - a melancholic masterpiece of German romanticism from ponalipshih a cliche. This record, for example, it is obvious from the experimental. Strangely enough, the impression is made that tone is set here not by the singer (Hans - Jorg Mammel possessing the correct, soft tenor with delicate transparent tops), and the tool: Arthur Shondervurd, the expert in historical keyboard tools of a romantic epoch, plays here an ancient grand piano of 1810 of release. The tool this and in itself possesses drier, more sonorous sound that only underlines a reserved manner of the pianist. As a result shubertovskaja music gets an unexpected touch of classicism, and not in the deepest interpretation. To the tenor lacks personal, perhaps, harizmatichnosti to be the lawyer such “ the Winter way “.
