 Trying too hard? April 5, 2012
By M.  Becker (Park Ridge, IL) -- See All My Reviews
The CD is full of passion and intensity, but fails due to technical issues. Ms. Lemper's voice is sometimes strained, her vibrato is often out of control, and her intonation, when she is not singing in sprechstimme, is only close. As far as the technical issues of the CD, the Vogler Quartet is by far and away the highlight of the CD. Their playing is tight, focused and wide ranging in intensity and timbre. It is however recorded as less than an equal partner to Ms. Lemper. At times, one has the impression that one is listening to a shellac 78, with an overlayed contemporary tract featuring Ms. Lemper. Where they even recorded in the same studio? The CD is in my opinion a disappointment.
