Volume 4 of the Hyperion Schumann edition introduces two outstanding young singers to the series, in solo songs and in duet: German/Greek mezzo-soprano Stella Doufexis and Swiss baritone Oliver Widmer. Also on the CD are several unaccompanied partsongs sung by the London Schubert Chorale under Stephen Layton, and songs by Clara Schumann. This disc comes with exhaustive, scholarly and entertaining notes by the incomparable Graham Johnson.
