The Erlkings spielen Franzl & Robert
Virtuoso performances of Lieder by Schubert and Schumann, translated into fine English.
Selected Lieder by Franz Schubert, and “Dichterliebe” by Robert Schumann.
A fresh approach wit a brand new sound! It makes no difference whether you’re in Vienna or London, young or old, a classical music enthusiast or a pop fan: it’s hard to resist the draw of these wonderfully modern Lieder arrangements! “Schubert in addictive form“, is how the “Mainpost” described it. The Erlkings is a quartet featuring American singer Bryan Benner. Their inspired and inspiring performances show how vital, charming und simple Schubert and Schumann’s 200-year old Lieder sound in English, without losing any of their depth. Captivating!
