Edward Elgar Complete songs for voice
and piano, vol. 1 & vol. 2
at Outhere Music
commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sir
Edward Elgar (1857-1934), a recording of the great British
composer’s Complete Songs is being produced by Channel
in cooperation with the 20th Century Song Foundation.
The famous English soprano Amanda Roocroft and English
baritone Konrad Jarnot, one of the most promising Lied
singers of our time, perform Elgar’s
well known cycle Sea Pictures (first CD recording
by a male voice) as well as a number of unknown Elgar
Songs, some of which have never been recorded before.
The accompaniment is in the hands of the initiator of
this project, the Dutch pianist Reinild Mees.
