Schubert: Winterreise

Robert E Benson
Classical CD Review (US)

Here are two more winners from the enterprising Australian label Melba, all featuring that country's artists … Australian tenor Steve Davislim (who began his career as a horn player) is an extraordinary artist who has it all. Now at the beginning of his career, he has enjoyed particular success in Mozart, but contemporary opera also plays an important role. This recording of Schubert's Winterreise is outstanding displaying the same qualities that distinguished his recent disk of Strauss lieder. Complete texts in German and English are provided. Both of these Melba issues have their usual luxurious packaging.
