Arnold Bezuyen

The Dichterliebe is considered the apogee of the romantic art song. Many great interpreters have set standards of excellence with it. The present recording with Arnold Bezuyen brings us the complete Dichterliebe including the four songs eliminated before printing with the following titles:

Dein Angesicht so lieb und schön (Your Countenance, So Dear and Lovely), No. 5
Lehn’ deine Wang’ an meine Wang’ (Lean Your Cheek on My Cheek), No. 6
Es leuchtet meine Liebe (My Love Shines), No. 15 Mein Wagen rollet langsam
(My Wagon Rolls Slowly), No. 16
The Dichterliebe cycle is completed by the Sieben Frühe Lieder (Seven Early Songs) of Alban Berg.
The Dutch tenor Arnold Bezuyen has already appeared internationally on the stages of the Teatro alla Scala di Milano, in Los Angeles, at the Bayreuth Festival, the Covent Garden Opera and the Vienna State Opera; he made his MET-Debut in New York last season as Loge under Fabio Luisi.
