Matthias Goerne’s first two Lieder albums for Deutsche Grammophon, recorded with Jan Lisiecki and Seong-Jin Cho respectively, earned rave reviews and multiple awards. The world-renowned German baritone now brings his planned trilogy to a close in collaboration with Daniil Trifonov. Their programme contains visionary meditations on the meaning of life and death, as expressed in song by Schumann, Brahms, Wolf, Berg and Shostakovich. Matthias Goerne · Daniil Trifonov – Lieder, set for release on 10 June 2022, finds two artists at the height of their powers in works that expose the heart of the human condition. 
The album will be preceded by two e-singles, with “Im wunderschönen Monat Mai” from Schumann’s Dichterliebe released on 22 April and “Denn es gehet dem Menschen wie dem Vieh” from Brahms’s Vier ernste Gesänge on 20 May. Music-lovers will also soon have the chance to enjoy Goerne and Trifonov’s performances of all the works on the album as captured live at the Berlin Philharmonie in January 2019. The artists’ acclaimed recital will be streamed on DG Stage on 24 June 2022.
