What inexhaustible richness: the baritone Daniel Blumenschein, together with the Leipzig Symphony Orchestra under its conductor Robbert van Steijn, opens the door to a vast musical land. On their new GENUIN CD, they embark on a journey through the most beautiful German folk songs in colorful new orchestral arrangements by Stephan König. The track list includes, for example, Komm, lieber Mai und mache (Come, dear May and make), Kein schöner Land (No fairer land) and, of course, the titular Im schönsten Wiesengrunde (In the most beautiful meadow grounds). With a well-balanced mixture of tradition and modernity, the CD knows how to capture the musical language of the recorded songs in ever new ways and transport them into the present time. As a result, we experience what is seemingly familiar completely anew!

Das Orchester
"The project captivates (...) with its musical intimacy and professionalism, in which voice, timbre and arrangement combine to create ravishing expression."
Review by Steffen A. Schmidt, March 2023

Fono Forum
"Baritone Daniel Blumenschein sings appropriately plain and textually comprehensible, sometimes even with a somewhat solemnly carried ductus."
