Plunge into the world of Franz Schubert one more time, compose lieder full of "Storm and Stress," drenched with longing for love and world-weariness – Wolfgang Mitterer, the much-praised organist and composer specializing in electronic music, has written songs after Schubert. Now his cycle of lieder for baritone, prepared piano and electronics, entitled Im Sturm, "In the storm," also rages on CD. Naturally, this is a storm intermingled with undercurrents of irony, and an understanding of Romantic lieder from today's perspective. But it is also, and especially so, about genuine emotions: felt by a composer who passionately operates his keys and computer controls; sung by a baritone, Georg Nigl, who is familiar with all Schubertesk melody lines, while he is also able to contribute the experience of Alban Berg's Wozzeck, which he performed at the Scala in Milan, to the broad range of emotions reflected in Mitterer's compositions.
