Tief von fern (deep from a distance)

GÖTZ PAYER – piano

“Deep in the distance” is the unifying title for this recording of songs in three different languages by five composers.  In their illuminating performances, Marie Seidler and Götz Payer conjure up a world of death, loss, and longing. The art of the song at it’s finest!
