Des Madchens Klage – Mendelssohn and Zelter Lieder – Digital Download

$8.99 (Digital Download)

Carl Friedrich Zelter (1758-1832) was one of the most important formative influences on his young protégé, Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), exemplified by his handing the young prodigy the responsibility for reviving Bach’s St. Matthew Passion in 1829 – a watershed event. Both Zelter and Mendelssohn added greatly to the Lieder repertoire, setting texts by the great poets of the day. Soprano Andrea Folan and fortepianist Tom Beghin provide a comprehensive view of their world of song.

The Romantics
A revolution in art and literature swept through Europe and by the early 1800’s Romanticism dominated the musical
landscape. Such figures as Beethoven, Mendelssohn, and Brahms exemplified the ideals yet maintained highly individual
