Notes and Editorial Reviews

By any reckoning, these [this disc along with Die schöne Müllerin and Winterreise] are among the very finest versions of each of the great cycles... In...the posthumous cycle, Schwanengesang, the range of mood is wonderfully caught, with no hint of roughness even under pressure.
