Benjamin Appl has released his second album of the season – a disc of some of Schubert’s finest lieder, recorded live in concert at the Wigmore Hall for the prestigious Wigmore Live label. The pianist is Graham Johnson, a leading Schubert expert and author of the acclaimed three volume encyclopedia ‘Franz Schubert: The Complete Songs‘ (Yale University Press 2014). The programme delves into Schubert’s music, showcasing the range of mood from the gentle ‘Am Bach im Frühling’ to the dramatic ‘Der Zwerg’.

Outstanding German baritone Benjamin Appl joins forces with Graham Johnson, one of the world s leading Schubertians, for an exciting recital. Through the course of this programme we explore the full expressive gamut of some of Schubert s finest Lieder, recorded live in concert at Wigmore Hall. From the tenderness of Am Bach im Frühling to the dramatic story-telling in Der Zwerg and the tranquility of Im Abendrot, Schubert s unparalleled depiction of human emotion is captured in unique clarity. Benjamin Appl graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and now continues his studies.

Benjamin Appl and Graham Johnson Perform Songs by Schubert. 13 April 2017 - 10:48am. Submitted by Music Freelance. The last private pupil of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, a BBC New Generation Artist, and a protégé of Graham Johnson, the ever-rising young baritone, Benjamin Appl is already an accomplished Schubertian. It’s apt, too, that this CD should display a picture of Johnson with book in hand, for this Schubert recital, which travels in an arc from light to darkness and back again, traverses some of the poets closest to the composer’s heart, including Schober, Seidl, Mayrhofer, Schubart, and the Schlegel brothers. Appl’s is a noble baritone and, with the purling pianism of Johnson, he creates a love-song.
