Notes and Editorial Reviews

"[Wunderlich's] freshness is most endearing, irresistible with so golden a voice..." -- The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs

"Fritz Wunderlich had one of the most beautiful lyric tenor voices of the 20th century. How tragic then that he died when he was only 36. In the lower register of his voice, he brings passion and authority to An Die Musik (To Music)..." -- Ian Lace, MusicWeb International [reviewing DG 445188]
