Schubert - Lieder with instrument obbligato


Sandrine Piau soprano
Arnaud Thorette viola
Johan Farjot piano and arrangements


Since the 19th century, Schubert's Lieder have been the subject of numerous transcriptions by Brahms, Reger, Liszt and even Offenbach... These adaptations transpose these lieder in their own way, endlessly declining the "delicate intimacy" of Schubert's music. The combination of the expression of a string instrument - the viola - with the voice sheds a very special light on these pages of music, restoring more of the mysteries and nuances of a part, underlining certain harmonies drawn by the piano. 
The choice of lieder was based on some central works of the repertoire (The Shepherd on the Rock, Ständchen) and some less known lieder (Auf dem strom, Lied der mignon, Viola).


The Shepherd on the Rock D965
Auf dem Strom D943
Viola D786
Sonata for Violin and Piano in D major (D384)

Ständchen D957
und Träume D827
Lied der Mignon D877
