Summary/Review: "This major recording series, across which a host of world-renowned singers draw listeners, decade by decade, through a century of song, from 1810 to 1910, reaches its third volume. Each issue features a carefully planned, varied programme performed by household names, whilst the series overall creates a comprehensive survey of song through the entire nineteenth century - an invaluable teaching asset, as well as a joy for listeners. 1830-1840 marks the fascinating bridge between the death of Schubert and Schumann's outburst of song in the 1840s. Vividly contrasting works from Germany bring songs by Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel and her brother Felix Mendelssohn, as well as Franz Lachner and Carl Loewe; from France by Giacomo Meyerbeer and Hector Berlioz; and from Russia songs by Alexander Alyabyev, Alexander Dargomyzhsky and Alexander Varlamov."--Publisher description.
