About

Grammy Award-winning tenor Karim Sulayman and fortepianist Yi-heng Yang transport the listener to Where Only Stars Can Hear Us with this album of songs by Franz Schubert that encapsulates emotions of joy and sorrow, darkness and light.

In life and music, Karim Sulayman is a master storyteller. Where Only Stars Can Hear Us is a journey through the songs of Franz Schubert, a composer who was able to capture joy and sorrow in a single moment like no other. Karim’s voyage traverses themes of darkness and yearning, guided throughout by moonbeams and shining stars. His partner is historical keyboardist Yi-heng Yang who plays on a fortepiano built by Joseph Simon in Vienna in 1830, adding an air of authenticity from Schubert’s time.

“lucid, velvety tenor and pop-star charisma” - BBC Music Magazine

“a pianist of astonishing skill and vividness”
- The New York Times

Reviews

Karim Sulayman has a well-schooled, flexible and beautiful lyric tenor voice at his disposal, with a rich and varied supply of nuances. His enunciation is impeccable, he is involved in what he is singing and he is a good story-teller.
