Day 351: Songs III

BrahmsCD45What shall we call this?

Cousin of Songs?

Niece of Songs?

Second Son By a Second Marriage of Songs?


This is Songs III, but with another change – a male vocalist instead of the female vocalist in the last CD.

The baritone on today’s CD sounds much like the tenor on Songs I. His range may go a little lower. But his upper register is every bit as high as the tenor’s.

The Compositions:

Too many to name. There are 19 tracks on today’s CD.

The Performers:

Michael Volle baritone

Karl-Peter Kammerlander piano

The singer is accomplished. But the compositions are lackluster.

The pianist is very good. I enjoy the tone of the piano and how it was recorded.

But this is another CD that I really didn’t need to hear.
