Notes and Editorial Reviews

The most unknown of the 19th century's great song cycles is a gripping adventure, and even more so when it is brought to life by the brilliant duo of baritone Nikolay Borchev and pianist Boris Kusnezow. From the very first notes of their Genuin debut release, the two artists captivate our imagination, and hearing the young, internationally-acclaimed singer, it's no surprise that he has been repeatedly engaged by institutions like the Bavarian and Vienna state operas. His clear diction, flowing musical lines, and great vocal beauty are ideally suited to Brahms's tale of Romantic chivalry. Pure listening pleasure!
