"H.E. Erwin Walther's oft-quoted statement that, as a composer, he was a colorful character, is especially appropriate in the case of his songs. In his output for voice and piano, spanning over 50 years, one finds romantic lieder alongside Tragodie vom Huhn und vom Kirchturmhahn ('The Tragedy of the Hen and the Church Tower Rooster'), chansons on text by Wilhelm Bush as well as the settings of Spanish poets featured on the present recording, while a single song 'Tag Ist' ('It Is Day,' from the Emmerig cycle) might include both twelve-note procedures (in the broader sense) and aleatory elements." Featured works: "Vier Lieder nach spanische Texten," "Drei Gasange fur Tenor und Klavier," "Sechs Lieder fur Soprano und Klavier," "Zwei Lieder fur Tenor und Klavier," "Vier heitere Lieder fur Soprano und Klavier," "Zwolf Sprechlieder fur Sprecher und Klavier." Performed by: Yvonne Friedli, soprano; Joachim Vogt, tenor; Wolfram Tesmer, baritone; Frank Gutschmidt, piano.
