A singular, but well documented meeting of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Johann Wenzel Tomaschek in Cheb as well as the poet’s benevolent words on the songs of the composer make this CD (which contains numerous songs as first recordings) a more than overdue redescovery of Johann Wenzel Tomaschek. His Lieder do not have to fear competition of other Goethe settings by far more famous composers.
