Ornate Lieder

Lieder established itself as an art-form in the latter part of the 18th century, as composers responded to new poetry, compositional styles and (perhaps especially) the newly-invented fortepiano. But while we have come to expect ornamentation in Baroque vocal music, it may come as a surprise to learn that it was also an accepted feature of operas, oratorios and Lieder by the likes of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert. Hear two of the world’s finest Lieder singers add their own ornate and distinctive interpretations to songs by these illustrious composers.
