Collaborators for a number of years, Philippe Sly and John Charles Britton recognize, in these "Schubert Sessions," a way of expanding and reclaiming the Viennese composer's place in popular culture, notably his influence on modern song. They present the opportunity to hear these lyrical masterpieces accompanied by guitar, which was probably the instrument Schubert used in order to appreciate the true effect of these compositions.
