Notes and Editorial Reviews

R E V I E W S

"Yet another outstanding German baritone joins the ranks of disc. Wolf´s songs have always occupied a difficult position - adored by performers, admired by scholars but often resisted by general audiences (though for the devotee they remain almost without parallel). Roman Trekel offers a wonderful blend of tonal beauty and intellectual engagement - a tricky balancing act with a composer whose head and heart need to be kept in delicate counterpoint."

-- Gramophone, November 2003
