Andreas Scholl tackles German Lieder

Renowned countertenor Andreas Scholl is trying something new on his latest album. After singing recitals for more than 20 years, he's decided to branch out and tackle a new genre: beautiful German Lieder by Mozart, Haydn, Brahms, and Schubert.

As a specialist in Baroque repertoire, Andreas shared his experiences of discovering German song with Anne-Marie Minhall. When you're branching out, how do you choose the best music from more than 100 years of songs?

He said: "The main reason for me to select repertoire is to find things that I really relate to, that I have a connection with, that I really love, and then I put them together."

Andreas sightread hours of Schubert's music with his wife in order to find his favourite songs; discover the motivation behind his choices in our interview below.
