Celebrating 25 Years of Excellence

Franz Schubert New Perspectives, Volume 1



We are proud to announce a series of six recordings with the young rising star, German soprano Dorothee Jansen and the distinguished composer and pianist Francis Grier. The series aims to flesh out Schubert’s rather hazy profile by presenting selections from the composer’s œuvre against the backdrop of his life, career and personal friendships. The main work in this CD is The Therese Grob Songbook, recorded here for the first time, and it vividly illustrares the composer’s failed youthful love affair with Therese Grob.

Dorothee Jansen – Soprano
Francis Grier – Piano

“How often does one get to hear a young singer of such musical intelligence and charisma?” – Review from Jansen-Grier Duo’s Schubert Recital at Bayreuth during the first week of the Festival in July 2000.
