Notes and Editorial Reviews

The www.opernnetz.de opera review site said this about Ann-Katrin Naidu: "Take breathtaking beauty, erotic charisma, a full-bodied dark mezzo voice and passionate temperament and - Voilá! - you have Ann-Katrin Naidu standing before you...

This CD is a compilation of all her favorite works — deeply moving songs full of melancholy by Brahms, Hensel, Wolf, and Strauss. The theme heard again and again on this recording is that of the mysterious, the redemptive, the magical and treacherous night.
