An alliance between Brahms and Schumann - Thomas Oliemans & Malcolm Martineau

Versatile, that word is ideally suited to Thomas Oliemans. As an opera singer, he already made it to the Metropolitan Opera in New York. As a Lieder singer, he sings French chansons as easily as Schubert songs, even accompanying himself on the piano. Now, he also comes up with something special. With the famous song accompanist Malcolm Martineau, he performs Die schöne Magelone by Brahms, wholly intertwined with Schumann's cycle Liederkreis.

That beautiful Magelone

Johannes Brahms wrote 'Die schöne Magelone' in 1861 based on texts by Ludwig Tieck. The melodrama, originally with spoken texts, is the story of knight Peter who falls in love with the beautiful Magelone and experiences many adventures before the two can truly be reunited. The fifteen songs are similar in atmosphere. The alternation with the twelve songs from Schumann's 'Liederkreis', which work as a kind of commentary, gives Brahms' cycle new meaning.
