CD "Verborgene Schätze"
Anna Gann (soprano) and Naoko Christ-Kato (piano), the two musicians of Gernsheim Duo, present sensational finds on their GENUIN CD. The 22 lieder by Friedrich Gernsheim, which they interpret with high sensitivity and insight, are recorded here for the first time. The composer is one of those Jewish musicians who was influential before the Holocaust and is almost forgotten today. The Gernsheim Duo is committed to the musical works of such composers and deserves praise for their efforts! The historical and musical value of these lieder, which have been meticulously compiled, cannot be overestimated—and the mastery of the two interpreters does them justice.
