Reviews:

“This important release presents two major collections of Wolf’s songs in exemplary performances by singers thoroughly versed in the interpretation of lieder. It’s so good I can hardly stop listening to it.” - American Record Guide


“Both performers yield themselves fully to the Wolfian spirit that created these magnificent works, able to project the most intimate sentiments while not shying away from the bolder proclamations found in both the secular and sacred texts. The recording is beautifully set down in splendid sonics, and is an important addition to the Wolf canon.” - Audiophile Audition


“After suffering through so many mediocre-to-awful Lieder recitals in recent years, it was almost like going on vacation to hear this splendid collection of Wolf’s pivotal song cycles. Hooray for Albany! And you’ll be thinking ‘Hooray for Albany!’ too, when you hear this superb release.” - Fanfare
