 Almost worth it for the Quodlibet Suite, but... September 15, 2013 By James Carleton (Camarillo, CA) See All My Reviews "Anja Silja is a fine soprano, but she doesn't have the power for this music, nor does she seems to grasp that there are times when smoothness is *not* wanted. One has to wonder if she actually has read the words she sings; she certainly doesn't sing some of them in a way that conveys their meaning. Which is a shame, as there is much to like about this recording: the male quartet, for one thing, which is the equal, at least, of that on the Julia Migenes recording, which is still available, and highly recommended. The Quodlibet Suite is a nifty "filler", as there are very few recordings of it available. But the total package, here, is not as good as it could be, unfortunately." Report Abuse
