The Great Escape - Music & More

The Austrian bass Günther Groissböck enchants on the opera and concert stages around the world with the unique noble sound of his voice and virtually breathtaking verve of performance. Together with Malcolm Martineau, who is recognized worldwide as one of the leading piano accompanists of his generation, Groissböck presents on the album "Nicht Wiedersehen!" incomparable interpretations of late Romantic songs and ballads by Richard Strauss, Gustav Mahler and Hans Rott. The duo pays homage to passion in Strauss songs such as "Zueignung", "Allerseelen" or "Breit' über mein Haupt", or leaves the audience rather thoughtful with "Der Einsame", "Das Thal" or "Befreit". Hans Rott, who died at a young age, can be heard in "Wandrer's Nachtlied", "Geistesgruß" and "Der Sänger". Groissböck also brings the tragic characters in Mahler's songs "Revelge", "Zu Straßburg auf der Schanz'", "Tamboursg'sell" or "Nicht wiedersehen!" to life in an incomparable way, before this great recording promises a transcendental end with "Urlicht".
