Classical / Chamber Music / Piano / Soprano

First recorded collaboration between one of the leading sopranos of our time, Juliane Banse, and the incomparable pianist András Schiff. The programme is a fascinating combination of two different worlds of 'Liedgesang' - in language as well as musical style and historicity.
One of the recurrent highlights of András Schiff’s chamber music series at the Mondsee Festival over the last decade has been his duet performances with Juliane Banse. The singer first went there, at the pianist’s invitation, in 1994. “I just sang five Mendelssohn songs with him then, but we realized right away that we were a good team,” says Ms Banse. Since then the duo has been a special commitment, a project returned to whenever crowded itineraries permit. “Songs of Debussy and Mozart” is their first album together.

A spontaneous, fresh approach, and an exchange of new ideas and insights in the music, has characterized their work. “The extraordinary things about working with András Schiff are that there are no rehearsals in the conventional sense; there’s no writing in the margin of the score, and fixing details and approaching the work the same way each time, none of that. It’s very different every time, which makes the live situation very exciting. Many new things always happen. If I have a new idea – and sometimes I’ll do things I’ve never done before - I know he’ll be able to accommodate it…”

Debussy songs have formed part of Banse/Schiff’s core repertoire from almost the beginning of their association, and were obvious choices for their first ECM recording, but Banse also felt that Mozart’s songs are consistently undervalued in contemporary recitals and chose to cast a fresh light on them.

“Generally the songs don’t get the attention they deserve. We wanted to put Mozart in the centre of the recording.” In bringing together songs of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Claude Debussy they uncover perhaps surprising ‘similarities’ between the composers. The mood is intimate, the atmosphere consistent. The French songs of Mozart including “Dans un bois solitaire” and “Oiseaux, si tous les ans” form one bridge to Debussy’s world. “Both composers are very delicate in the expression of feeling in their songs” says Banse, “both very personal, and they both give so much from themselves.” Connections are stressed by Banse’s forthright approach to the Mozart. “You have to dare to sing the Mozart lieder as if they were impressionistic songs – then they suddenly become what they really are.”

Banse’s performance is informed by the very wide range of contexts in which she has worked. She was last heard on ECM singing the title role in Heinz Holliger’s opera “Schneewitttchen”, with critics reaching for their lexicon of superlatives. “Formidable … burning with pent-up emotions” (The New York Times), “superb” (The Guardian), “scales stratospheric heights” (The Independent). The recording won a German Critics Prize (Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik, Bestenliste 1/2001).

Born in Germany, raised in Switzerland, the multi-lingual Banse is supremely at ease with the fine poetry she is called upon to sing in German and French on this disc. As a singer she has been praised for the way in which she can enter a text and renew its emotional core. Here the texts include those of Verlaine, Mallarmé and Goethe. Mozart, of course, did more than “set” poetry in his songs and Debussy was yet more wayward in the freedoms he took with a text. As Jacques Drillon writes in the liner notes, “Following Verlaine, Debussy devised new relationships: especially between poetry and music, which were apparently bound together by an unbreakable contract. His music is never, or hardly ever, wedded to the text. His harmony is not imitative. Debussy asserts himself, with admirable pride, and superimposes his thoughts on the poet’s – his atmosphere, his memories, his world … Let’s look simply at the rhythm. Debussy was and remains the ultimate master of French prosody. And Verlaine was not the worst practitioner of rhythm in French literature. They were made to understand one another, to go together. Even so, in his songs with piano, Debussy crosses swords with the text.”
