The Schumann Song Book
Jazz reinterpretations of classic art songs part 4/ mathias rüegg & Lia Pale in the MuTh

Drawing on Schumann’s treasury of over 300 Lieder,  Lia Pale and mathias rüegg have created a Lieder cycle of their very own. Their Schumann Song Book comprises sixteen pieces in total. As well as featuring well-known works such as “Mondnacht”, “Erstes Grün” and “Ich grolle nicht”, the selection includes works which are much less well-known, among them “Es stürmet am Abendhimmel”, “Herbstlied” and “O Freund, mein Schirm, mein Schutz”. Reworked rhythms, phrases and harmonies transform these pieces into immaculately rendered new jazz standards.
