Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

-----



The silvery-toned tenor -- going for a modern 'Miller' -- is still among the best

In a way, this is the perfect complement to Matthias Goerne's recent Schubert disc -- dominated as it was by a sombre, melancholy mood. Honey-voiced Christoph Prégardien is clearly an optimist in this Schöne Müllerin. There is a sense of challenges to be overcome rather than crushing inevitability. It's refreshing, and freshly, elegantly sung.

-- Gramophone [7/2008]
