Franz Schubert, Schwanengesang, Mark Padmore, tenor, Paul Lewis, piano (Harmonia Cheap Cartons Of Cigarettes Mundi). Mark Padmore and Paul Lewis have that rocker look, and their music, too, has that edge. This performance of Schubert's last group of songs, the incredibly beautiful "Swan Song," has many arresting moments. Padmore's tenor is on the delicate side and is at a disadvantage in the hefty "Der Atlas" and the stormy "Fruehlingsehnsucht." The famous "Serenade," though it has good tension, could have more passion. On the other hand these two are the masters of the quiet tension, making songs like "Ihr Bild" or "Abschied" very effective. Lewis is a marvelous pianist with a fine sense of timing. There are two bonus tracks: the familiar "Die Steren" and the lesser-known "Auf dem Strom," which features Richard Watkins on French horn and includes some sublime phrases.

Heart on the Wall, African American Art Songs For Orchestra, Louise Toppin, soprano, the Dvorak Symphony Orchestra, Julius P. Williams, conductor (Albany). Here are three song cycles on African-American themes, by Robert Owens, Julius P. Williams and Robert L. Morris. Owens, an expat living in Germany since 1959, bases his "Heart on a Wall" on poems by Langston Hughes. Some of it is the same-old, same-old, but "Remembrance" soars into beauty. Nkeiru Okoye's "Songs of Harriet Tubman" are more musical recitation than melody, but they have direction and dignity and hold the listener's interest. "Myths of History," by Williams, is too abstract and academic for me. The texts to the songs are incomplete, sometimes leaving out words or even entire verses. "Lyric Suite" by Robert L. Morris has a nice jazzy, "Porgy and Bess" sound. Morris' music shows the influence Buy Cheap Cigarettes Online of George Gershwin and Duke Ellington. Toppin has a confident and capable soprano, a delight to listen to. Bach, B. Warren and G. Pierne (Newport Classic Ltd.). The bright, clean sound of a saxophone quartet lends itself to a lot of different music, which is why this disc covers so much ground. The Glazounov Quartet, written Cigarettes Wholesale for a saxophone quartet, has a straightforward grace. "Introduction and Variations on a Popular Round" (I did not recognize the round) by Gabriel Pierne reminded me at times of Ravel.
