Reviews

‘This is a wonderful disc by any standard. Indeed, the partnership of Schreier and Schiff [is] a masterstroke of Decca … [Schreier’s] performances of the Heine settings … have become so anguished as to expose every nerve end in their depiction of lost love, and Schiff’s realisation of the piano’s role seconds the singer’s probings perfectly. […] This is really a “must” for any Lieder collection.’ Gramophone

‘One of the most compelling recordings ever of Schwanengesang … The recording is vividly real.’ *** Penguin Guide to Compact Discs
