Description: "Songs by Great Conductors" brings two examples of the Schumann-Brahms lieder tradition (von Bülow, from 1857 and 1884) and two others whose inspiration seems to come mainly from composers whom they knew well and often conducted: Walter's 1902 and 1910 sets are indebted to Mahler and Krauss (1920) writes in the Jugendstil of Richard Strauss. German-English texts. Petra Lang (soprano), Michael Volle (baritone), Adrian Baianu (piano).
