About the album

Originally these lieder were not intended to be sung in concert halls, but in private salons. People bought the sheet music and sang it at home. The songs were therefore interpreted by ordinary singers. When I understood this, I really began to love them.”
- Lewis Furey
Well-known for his collaborations with Leonard Cohen and Carole Laure, author-composer-performer Lewis Furey has immersed himself in Brahms’ music for more than a decade. The result is Haunted by Brahms, Furey’s very personal take on the composer’s lieder. As he says: As a singer/songwriter I became fascinated by the quality, the regularity, and the longevity of Brahms’ production as well as the unique combination of profundity and accessibility in his music.” Furey has selected 16 of Brahms’ lieder, adapted and translated them from German to English, and sings them in his own way, accompanying himself on a Fazioli piano. Recorded in Montreal’s intimate Chapelle Historique du Bon-Pasteur.
