Read more /> This is a lovely collection of Strauss songs, beautifully performed and very well recorded. Camilla Tilling is a young Swedish soprano with a rapidly growing career. Her voice is bright, flexible, and sharply focused without ever becoming harsh. The sound has a genuine sheen and radiance that adds a lot to her singing. She also sings with real personality, and displays the warmth and humor that are essential ingredients of these songs. One issue: she overuses, somewhat, a technique of starting a note slightly under the pitch and then easing up into it. This kind of pitch-bending can be an effective interpretive device, and I even enjoy it, but Tilling resorts to it too frequently. Nonetheless, this is a minor nitpick for what is a very beautiful recording.


Paul Rivinius may not have quite the imagination of Malcolm Martineau (who accompanies Barbara Bonney on a lovely Strauss disc on Decca 460812), but he is no mere note-reader either. His playing is supportive and involved, and definitely adds to the overall success of this disc. Ulf Wallin plays the violin solo in Morgen exquisitely.


BIS’s engineering also adds to the disc’s overall success. Heard in SACD mode and regular stereo mode (on two channels only), this recording has a natural warmth, balance, and perspective that is ideal. You feel that you are in a small room with the performers—but at enough distance for the sound to bloom. BIS provides insightful notes and full texts and translations.


The Barbara Bonney disc noted above is certainly also recommendable. Helpfully, there are only five songs that overlap the two discs ( Allerseelen, Morgen, Das Rosenband, Meinem Kinde , and Muttertändelei ). But anyone who loves this repertoire will be pleased to add this to their collection.
