with Myra Huang

Avie Records

Gustav Mahler: Wo die shönen Trompeten blasen from Des Knaben Wunderhorn

LIVE full take from 'Gods & Monsters' recording sessions at Skywalker Sound, August 9, 2016

GODS & MONSTERS is an expression of acclaimed lyric tenor Nicholas Phan’s life-long fascination with myths and legends, and a testament to this singer’s great gift for storytelling through the medium of song. Phan joins forces with regular collaborator Myra Huang to explore this thematic program of Lieder by the great Romantic composers of the Germanic tradition: songs recounting tall tales of the godly, the gallant and the grotesque – the fantastical and the fearsome.
