Title - 'Where Only Stars Can Hear Us'
Artist - Karim Sulayman & Yi-heng Yang

For those not in the know, in life and music, Grammy Award-winning tenor Karim Sulayman is a master storyteller.

Hence, Where Only Stars Can Hear Us is a journey through the songs of Franz Schubert, a composer who was able to capture joy and sorrow in a single moment like no other.

Karim's voyage traverses themes of darkness and yearning, guided throughout by moonbeams and shining stars and along for the ride is his partner, historical keyboardist Yi-heng Yang; who plays on a fortepiano built by Joseph Simon in Vienna in 1830, adding an air of authenticity from Schubert's time.

Franz Schubert (1797 – 1828)
1. 'Lied eines Schiffers an die Dioskuren, D360' (3.22)
2. 'Die Sterne, D939' (2.56)
3. 'Die Sternennächte, D670' (3.12)
4. 'An die Laute, D905' (1.30)
5. 'Alinde, D904' (4.00)
6. 'Abends unter der Linde, D235' (2.16)
7. 'An den Mond, D193' (3.29)
8. 'Die Forelle, D550' (2.14)
9. 'Des Fischers Liebesglück, D933' (7.14)
10. 'Am Meer (Schwanengesang, D957: No.12)' (4.12)
11. 'Abendbilder, D650' (5.01)
12. 'Nacht und Träume, D827' (3.47)
13. 'Der Vater mit dem Kind, D906' (4.01)
14. 'Erlkönig, D328' (4.07)
15. 'Der Winterabend, D938' (7.18)
16. 'An den Mond, D259' (3.14)
17. 'Nachtgesang D119' (3.35)
18. 'Das Rosenband, D280' (1.40)

Opening with the stoic, yet breathtakingly generous 'Lied eines Schiffers an die Dioskuren, D360,' progressing on through with such works as the hop and skip of 'Die Sterne, D939,' the free flowing perkiness of 'Alinde, D904,' and both the more pronounced 'An den Mond, D193' and the breathy, Spring-like ambiance of 'Abendbilder, D650' showcase the best of this Sulayman and Yang partnership.

Add to that the orchestral brilliance of 'Der Winterabend, D938,' with the album rounding out with the euphoric nature of both 'Nachtgesang D119' and 'Das Rosenband, D280,' and the combination of the velvety tenor and the sublimely skilled pianist culminates a collection of astonishing skill and class to the utmost perfection.
