Notes and Editorial Reviews

Kathleen Ferrier, one of the most beloved voices of the century, performing twenty-one songs from Mahler, Schumann, and Brahms, including a very rare recording of Schumann’s Frauenliebe und Leben. An excellent and well-recorded collection taken at the peak of “Klever Kaff’s” remarkable skill.

“In the Brahms and Mahler everything benefits from the loveliness of voice and sincerity of approach. Finest of all, I think, are the Vier ernste Gesänge, the voice at its most sumptuous and utterly right for the songs, the style having noble breadth and authority as well as keeping compassionate personal contact.” -- Gramophone

“I adore the Frauenliebe and I can see that girl growing up from a child to a woman - and
Read more these light songs are all the highlights of joy and sorrow.” -- Kathleen Ferrier
