About

"In 'Stimme der Sehnsucht,' a poem by Carl Busse, the voice of longing is depicted as a mysterious whispering sound, a dark and confused spirit from Thule, a mythical island beyond the boundaries of the world. Edgar Allan Poe’s poem 'Dream-land' portrays Thule as a surreal realm of melancholy and dread, while Rainer Maria Rilke wrote: ‘That is longing: living in turmoil and having no home in time'." - Christianne Stotijn

Christianne Stotijn’s recital of Lieder by Pfitzner, Mahler and Strauss confronts powerful emotions – longing, loving, grief, and a desperate wish to turn the clock back to happier times. The collection is dominated by the theme of night, an exploration of dreams, restlessness and darkness.

This is a thoughtful and moving programme from one of the outstanding mezzos of our time. Christianne Stotijn’s previous recordings for ONYX have been praised and her song recital CD 'Tchaikovsky Romances' (ONYX4034) was awarded a BBC Music Magazine Award in 2010.

BBC Music Magazine also awarded Stotijn five stars for her Mahler recording 'Urlicht' (ONYX4014), while Michael Kennedy praised the CD as "One of my discs of the year" in The Sunday Telegraph.

Her debut CD for ONYX, featuring Lieder by Schubert, Berg and Wolf (ONYX4009), also received five stars from BBC Music Magazine, and the Philadelphia Daily News called the album “Easily the most impressive art-song disc in years”.
