Personal notes by the artists on the program, which focusses on the theme of „lovers“
Strauss, Mozart, Schubert – What do these composers mean to you?


Katharina Konradi
The labels “Mozart soprano” and “Strauss soprano” are often said to be practically indistinguishable. Indeed, in terms of melodic style, the two composers are not that far apart. Mozart suits my voice well, and the same is true of Richard Straus’s light lyrical repertoire.

Then Schubert, with his astoundingly vast lieder output and his variety of musical expression, holds a special place for me. Every time I prepare a recital, these almost inexhaustible treasures take me on a delightful journey of surprising discoveries, and that is what my life as a lieder interpreter is all about.….. Every piece on this CD has a special appeal for me.

Daniel Heide:
For a pianist, Mozart and Schubert are a matter of course! Mozart wrote a number of keyboard sonatas (and the violin sonatas!) along with a multitude of piano concertos: his Lieder come as an added attraction. They are marvelous gems. And any pianist who decides to go further than Schubert’s solo piano works in order to delve into his seemingly infinite world of 600 Lieder-treasures comes out a happier man.

In every Strauss song I find that the timbre is unique: an atmosphere you can experience only in Strauss territory, that special luminosity of sound, the silvery tone.……….

Mozart’s, Schubert’s, and Strauss’s songs are core German lieder repertoire, and they are pivotal and essential material for singers worldwide.

Mozart and Strauss are the linchpins and cornerstones of our soprano careers on the opera stage…… (Excerpts from the booklet interview with both artists)

Daniel Heide had a close collaboration with the late German-Greek mezzo-soprano Stella Doufexis. Their CD Poèmes with songs by Claude Debussy was awarded the German Record Critics’ Prize. As a chamber music partner in duo sonata recitals he has concertized with outstanding soloists including Sabine Meyer, Tabea Zimmermann, Antje Weithaas, Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt, Jens Peter Maintz, and Danjulo Ishizaka.
Daniel Heide is the founder and artistic director of the vocal recital series Der lyrische Salon. Held in Ettersburg Castle near Weimar, the series has existed since 2011 and is one of the few – anywhere in the world – that is devoted exclusively to artsong. In that context he has collaborated with a great number of celebrated soloists of the lied genre in more than 100 recitals at the Castle Ettersburg.
On CAvi-music he recorded with baritone Andrè Schuen songs by Robert Schumann, Hugo Wolf, Frank Martin and a Schubert album Wanderer; with Roman Trekel most famous Loewe Ballades, with Stella Doufexis Hamlet Echoes, with Konstantin Krimmel Liszt Songs and the album Liebe with the soprano Katharina Konradi.

Katharina Konradi (soprano)

Konradi’s timbre has a delicate fragrance, the voice seems weightless and light as a feather. Opernwelt Whether in opera, operetta or lied, Katharina Konradi is a storyteller who imbues her characters with verve, intimacy, temperament and intensity. Her full and warm soprano, praised by Opernglas for its wonderfully agile, fascinating palette of nuances, captivates audiences and critics alike with its great radiance and cultivated emotionality. My aim is to rediscover myself in every opera and in every song, to lend my own ego to the role and become one with the character I portray, is how the singer describes herself. In the season 2023/24 Katharina Konradi will make guest appearances at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, London, as Woglinde in Wagner’s Das Rheingold and as Susanna in Mozart’s...

Composer(s)

Franz Schubert

Franz Peter Schubert was an Austrian composer. Schubert already died before his 32nd birthday, but was extremely prolific during his lifetime. His output consists of over six hundred secular vocal works (mainly Lieder), seven complete symphonies, sacred music, operas, incidental music and a large body of chamber and piano music. Appreciation of his music while he was alive was limited to a relatively small circle of admirers in Vienna, but interest in his work increased significantly in the decades following his death. Felix Mendelssohn, Robert Schumann, Franz Liszt, Johannes Brahms and other 19th-century composers discovered and championed his works. Today, Schubert is ranked among the greatest composers of the late Classical and early Romantic eras and is one of the...

Today, Schubert is ranked among the greatest composers of the late Classical and early Romantic eras and is one of the most frequently performed composers of the early nineteenth century.
It was in the genre of the Lied that Schubert made his most indelible mark. Prior to Schubert's influence, Lieder tended toward a strophic, syllabic treatment of text, evoking the folksong qualities engendered by the stirrings of Romantic nationalism. Schubert expanded the potentialities of the genre like no other composer before.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, whose actual name is Joannes Chrysotomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a composer, pianist, violinist and conductor from the classical period, born in Salzburg. Mozart was a child prodigy. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty. Along with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven, Mozart is considered to be one of the most influential composers of all of music's history. Within the classical tradition, he was able to develop new musical concepts which left an everlasting impression on all the composers that came after him.

Within the classical tradition, he was able to develop new musical concepts which left an everlasting impression on all the composers that came after him. Together with Joseph Haydn and Ludwig van Beethoven he is part of the First Viennese School. At 17, Mozart was engaged as a musician at the Salzburg court, but grew restless and traveled in search of a better position. From 1763 he traveled with his family through all of Europe for three years and from 1769 he traveled to Italy and France with his father Leopold after which he took residence in Paris. On July 3rd, 1778, his mother passed away and after a short stay in Munich with the Weber family, his father urged him to return to Salzburg, where he was once again hired by the Bishop. While visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in the capital, where he achieved fame but little financial security. During his final years in Vienna, he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, and portions of the Requiem, which was largely unfinished at the time of his death.

Richard Strauss

Richard Georg Strauss was a leading German composer of the late Romantic and early modern eras. He is known for his operas, which include Der Rosenkavalier, Elektra, Die Frau ohne Schatten and Salome; his Lieder, especially his  Four Last Songs; his tone poems, including Don Juan, Death and Transfiguration, and An Alpine Symphony; and other instrumental works such as Metamorphosen and his Oboe Concerto. Strauss was also a prominent conductor in Western Europe and the Americas, enjoying quasi-celebrity status as his compositions became standards of orchestral and operatic repertoire. Strauss, along with Gustav Mahler, represents the late flowering of German Romanticism after Richard Wagner, in which pioneering subtleties of orchestration are combined with an advanced harmonic style.
