about this recording:
What richness of tonal motion, what transparency in the setting of the poems of Merit Oppenheim, "Quelle belle femme": this proves how sensuous modern music can be. Whether in the music on texts by Jean Paul or in the nidere minne, Markus Schmitt (scholarship holder of the Villa Massimo, Rome, and of the International Artists' House Villa Concordia, Bamberg) always shows himself to be a brilliant composer and extremely interesting musician.
