Back to Music Wonderland was created by centaur
My tendency to get enchanted by beautiful voices has led me back to music, my former love.
Two months ago I happened to hear a German vocalist singing Bach`s Cantatas with our Radio Symphony Orchestra. I was totally fascinated by his divine, unique high baritone.
Since then I`ve spent all my spare time listening to his heavenly recitals, mostly Lieder by Schubert and Mahler.

In the future I`ll pop in here only occasionally when I find my way out of the wonderful world of musical art.

Dear UNF
A straight answer to a direct question: Christian Gerhaher
Sorry, I didn`t mean it as a secret. But I wasn`t sure if anyone here would be interested in classical music, so I thought it`d be unimportant to mention the name.

In case you want to check out from Youtube I put here some of my favourites:
- Melodies de Schubert, with Gerold Huber, piano ( 22min.)
- Mahler, Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, PROMS, Mahler Jugendorchester, Herbert Blomstedt ( 4x 4min.)
- Gabriel Faure, Requiem, Berliner Philharmoniker, Simon Rattle ( 2min.)
- Mahler, Des Knaben Wunderhorn, with Magdalena Kocena, sopr. Cleveland Orchestra, Pierre Boulez ( 50min.)

I know you share my enthusiasm over beautiful voices, so I hope you`ll find enjoyment in these clips.

You are right, I too love beautiful voices, and Mr. Parker's most of all (eureka, an opportunity to insert plea plug: please, Mr. Parker, more audio!! :lol: )

Thank you so much for your reply, Centaur. I will enjoy giving a listen to Mr. Gerhaher and exploring the links you so kindly provided.

Happy listening to you!

I enjoy peaceful and beautiful music in any form. I will have to check out these links. Thank you for sharing! :) :) :) (And yes, Nat has a wonderfully melodic speaking voice - perfect for audio recordings).
