Next Great Art Song - Daniel Lichti's Favourite Art Song

La Scena Musicale is celebrating the Art Song in 2015-16 with the launch of an worldwide survey, What is your favourite art song? Submit your vote at Here is a submission by bass-baritone Daniel Lichti.
1. My top choice is Schubert’s Der Lindenbaum.  For me it is one of the best examples of the duality in which a song, as recognizable as a beloved folk song, can also exhibit the composer’s mastery, with all the refinement and depth of the Art Song.


3. Third Choice is Hôtel by Francis Poulenc.

 This has been a difficult exercise…there are so many more favourites!
