Notes and Editorial Reviews

A programme of exquisite miniatures, alternative versions and a wonderful quasi-operatic scena: this is a tantalizing Lisztian recital to showcase the artistry of Julia Kleiter.

-----

REVIEW:

The performances here blaze with conviction. Kleiter’s tone is wonderfully even and exceptionally beautiful over a wide vocal range, and her commitment is never for a second in doubt. Drake is similarly at his best here…A marvellous disc and a great recital in its own right, this is arguably the finest instalment of the series to date. Do listen to it.
