About the album

Beyond the music…

The joined forces of music and literature can lift up both arts beyond themselves. It is this promise that impelled many composers throughout the centuries to transcend their talents in the own musical discipline to create a higher reality – whether in the intimate atmosphere of the Lied or in the exhilarating publicity of the opera. A late seventeenth-century testimony of this is the semi-opera King Arthur (1691) by Henry Purcell: In What Power art thou, who from below… chills run down the spine when the allegorical figure Cold Genius shakes off the snow from his cloak at the request of Cupid, who wants to incite a new spring with his love.
Voorbij de muziek…

De gebundelde krachten van muziek en woord kunnen beide kunsten boven zichzelf uittillen. Het is die belofte die vele componisten over de eeuwen heen aanzette hun talenten binnen het eigen muzikale vakgebied te overstijgen en een hogere werkelijkheid te creëren – hetzij in de intieme sfeer van het Lied, hetzij in de opwindende openbaarheid van de opera. Al in het Engeland van de late zeventiende eeuw leverde Henry Purcell in zijn semi-opera King Arthur (1691) een eerste bewijs: de rillingen lopen over de rug wanneer de allegorische figuur Cold Genius in What Power art thou, who from below… de sneeuw uit zijn mantel schudt op vraag van Cupido, die met zijn liefde een nieuwe lente wil doen aanbreken.
Charles Dekeyser singt Werke von Schubert, Schumann, Mozart, Strauss, Chopin, Rossini, Mahler, Purcell und Kreutzer.
