Rosemary Standley - Schubert in Love - The Guardian

Taking the folk-classical connection in the opposite direction, Schubert in Love is an affectionate throwing-together of styles, instruments and melodies centring on Rosemary Standley. She brings her reedy, soft-grained folk voice to favourite numbers by the composer, gently but convincingly reworked in folk or jazz form. Alongside her are the six musicians of Ensemble Contraste, plus classical soprano Sandrine Piau and jazz trumpeter Airelle Besson. If you love Schubert but aren’t too much of a purist, you might fall hard for this – or at least find yourself thinking about this music in a different way.
