Description: The third all-Thuille Lieder disc we've offered since Dec. 2007 has 11 songs which are available on the other two discs (from op. 4, 7 & 15) but another 11 which are not. The op. 32 pair are as introverted and valedictory as the striking op. 36 set (on 12J076). Thuille reacts spontaneously to the texts, harmony and balance between piano and singer take precedence over melody (sorry, no cheap hum-alongs here!) even though it may be that lack which threw this œuvre into oblivion until recently. German texts. Roman Trekel (baritone), Hartmut Höll (piano).
