I would go a step further.  Mr. Schade, within his fach, has one of the most beautiful tenor voices of the past hundred years, and the intepretation of the highest level.  As tenor Lieder singing goes, I would say his is on a level with Leo Slezak's electrical reordings (minus the head tones, of course).  It would be hard to praise Ms. Maule too much.  The accompaniment was uniformly of a very high order.  In Der Musensohn, in which the piano is in perpertual motion, she brought off the several minutes of constantly fast notes not only perfectly, but very musically. Mr. Braun is a wonderful musician with marvelous style but, while his voice is quite good, I would not consider it to be at Mr. Schade's level. Bravi to all.

MICHAEL SCHADE has to have one of the most beautiful tenor voices around! Pair that
up with RUSSELL BRAUN's baritone, and Mr.Braun's wife, CAROLYN MAULE, at the
piano, and it spells SUCCESS!...
