Notes and Editorial Reviews

...[I]n the Claudius Wiegenlied she is excellent, with a serenity and tenderness in her singing that return in several other songs, including Heidenröslein. She sings this with a simplicity that has eluded many a more famous name, and she also gives a charming account of An Silvia... [György Fischer] is a sensitive artist, good at matching her weight and quality of voice... He also does well in Der Hirt auf dem Felsen ("The shepherd on the rock"), with what is surely the dreariest piano part ever written by a great composer, and is companionably supported by Peter Schmidl. Fontana sings this old warhorse nicely.

-- Gramophone [7/1984]
