The Brahms Song Book
Jazz reinterpretations of classic art songs part 3/ mathias rüegg & Lia Pale in the MuTh

As they assembled their “Brahms Song Book”, Lia Pale and mathias rüegg explored a highly personal selection of Lieder, including some Brahms treatments of German folk songs. This ultimately resulted in a set of fifteen diverse miniatures which are performed “with an understated sonority, a great deal of feeling, and a total absence of kitsch” (Jazzthing). Lia Pale plays bass flute interpretations of romantic songs such as “Liebestreu”, “Der Tod, das ist die kühle Nacht” and “Du mein einziges Licht” before Eichendorff’s “Mondnacht” sounds the final chord in this highly respectful tribute to Brahms.
