Bass-baritone Christian Immler, accompanied by the pianist Andreas Frese, juxtaposes the contemporary composer Jörg Widmann with the Romantic Schumann in three cycles of lieder written between 1849 and 2013. 'For us, Jörg Widmanns song cycle Das heiße Herz ('The Burning Heart') is to be numbered among the very greatest song cycles, and not just among those of this century. During our intensive rehearsals with Jörg Widmann, the many questions we had (and what a joy to be able to ask them!) often had surprisingly simple answers. The combination with Schumann's late Harper and Lenau song cycles seems absolutely perfect, for similar situations permeate these cycles as well. Das heiße Herz is recorded here for the first time.
