Purcell/Crumb: Apparition; Schäfer/Schneider. Ever the maverick, Schäfer has elected to place music by Henry Purcell (1659-1695) and George Crumb (1929-) side by side. The album's title comes from its closing item, Crumb's 1979 cycle, a death-haunted setting of Walt Whitman for soprano and prepared piano. Schäfer and her pianist, Eric Schneider, build towards it by interweaving songs about love and mortality by both composers, and you're repeatedly struck by similarities in the exacting way each responds to words and in the flexible sensuousness of their vocal writing.

Christine Schaefer and Eric Schneider’s unsettling recital of songs by Henry Purcell and George Crumb begins with a child’s voice and a shred of a Shakespeare sonnet, setting the scene for a forensic examination of obsessive love. Odd as some of Schneider’s Purcell realisations are, they and Schafer’s highly stylized singing quickly bridge the three-century gap between the interpolated composers, highlighting the peculiar morbidity of the imagery. For me, there’s no such thing as early music or new music," Christine Schäfer remarks in a mission-statement sleeve note for her new album, Apparition - one of the most startling recital discs of recent years.

Christine Schäfer’s approach to Henry Purcell was thoroughly modern, but she was more at home in George Crumb’s music. It is a point worth exploring, and Ms. Schäfer and her pianist, Eric Schneider, did so by interspersing Mr. Crumb’s music among familiar Purcell songs. But in a way, the demonstration was rigged. Except for Apparition (1979), at the end of the program, the Crumb works strewn among the Purcell were student pieces from the late 1940s, written in a conservative, fetchingly melodic style that shrinks the nearly three centuries that separate these composers.
