SONG LIED CÂN TCR027
songs by Clara Schumann and Rhian Samuel

Katharine Dain, soprano

Paul Carey Jones, bass-baritone

Jocelyn Freeman, piano

This collection presents vocal works by Rhian Samuel (born 1944) and Clara Schumann (born 1819), two women who have played an important role in the development of song during their lifetimes.

 

Displaying the beauty, optimism and integrity of their musical languages, the programme juxtaposes the brilliant classical mastery and vibrant word setting of Clara Schumann’s music against the more angular and dramatic boldness of Rhian Samuel.

Mae'r casgliad hwn yn cyflwyno gweithiau lleisial Rhian Samuel (ganed 1944) a Clara Schumann (1819-96), dwy fenyw sydd wedi chwarae rôl bwysig wrth ddatblygu'r gân yn ystod eu bywydau.

Yn amlygu harddwch, optimistiaeth ac uniondeb eu hieithoedd cerddorol, mae'r rhaglen yn cyferbynnu meistrolaeth glasurol ddisglair a gosod geiriau bywiog Clara Schumann â beiddgarwch mwy onglog a dramatig Rhian Samuel.
