Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Bostridge, who follows in the British tradition of Peter Pears and Robert Tear, lets us revel in his graceful, pulpy lyric tenor, which boasts an equal facility for those fortissimo high-Cs in the last song as for the limpid pianissimo passages in the sixth song...In the first song's halting phrases he captures the speechlessness one experiences during infatuation; similarly, you hear the haunting sensation directly in the next stanza ("Why does she stay here/Why won't she go away?") and you can feel the empathetic frustration in the fifth song when he just can't get the gypsy out of his head.

Adès adds atmosphere and dimension to the words, illuminating the text at every turn. Check out for instance the
Read more luminous twinkling in the third song ("The glow-worms are dancing") and the subtle dawn episode in the following section.

In the final analysis, this release is highly worthwhile, in excellent sound and in an interpretation that emphasizes reverie over passion."
