The Romantic outsider fated or choosing to live beyond the bounds of society is the main theme of this striking collection. Boesch, who recently released a powerfully convincing Schöne Müllerin cycle, has an ideal voice, at once dark and dazzling, and his accompanist —except that Schubert's rich, inventive piano parts are so much more than accompaniments—is perfect. If a quest for expressiveness can lead Boesch to disturb the line of a phrase, The Gods of Greece, In the Forest, Autumn and the beautiful Mother Earth are splendid.
