A new review of Die Schöne Müllerin from The Whole Note

The Canadian publication, The Whole Note, just published this review of Michael Kelly’s and David Leisner’s Die Schöne Müllerin recording on the Bright Shiny Things label: “Leisner’s clever adaptation of the accompaniment and his clear and fluent playing provide a transparent, yet supportive framework for Kelly’s nuanced interpretation. The sparser textures produced by the guitar allow Kelly to really shine, especially in the tender, quieter moments, without compromising the effect of the more dramatic sturm und drang aspects of the song cycle.”
