With Lieder/Canciones, sTem, featuring soprano Meagan Brus, honors the old, explores the new, and reimagines what’s in between. Schubert’s oft-performed and recorded Der Hirt auf dem Felsen serves as inspiration for interpreting new works by living composers and our new collaborations give us fresh insight into the standard repertoire. Our debut album serves as the first and definitive recording of sTem’s original commissions by Rex Isenberg and Giovanni Piacentini, along with sTem’s original arrangement of Daniel Catán’s aria, Escúchame.
