Overview

John Mark Ainsley

John Mark Ainsley

BEETHOVEN An die ferne Geliebte
SCHUMANN Dichterliebe
BEETHOVEN Adelaide

John Mark Ainsley
tenor
Roger Vignoles piano

Beethoven’s An die ferne Geliebte (‘To the Distant Beloved’) channels feelings of intense longing and fixation on the pain of separation. The earlier setting of poet Friedrich von Matthisson’s Adelaide similarly focusses on fervent desire and the unattainable. Schumann’s Dichterliebe, or ‘A Poet’s Love’, traces a poet’s increasing destitution as he yearns for his imagined love.
