Notes & Reviews:

"This recording is a marvel. Singer and accompanist really sound like equal partners, and their performance is elegant and thoughtful. The articulation of the moving passages in the last strophe of 'Kriegers Ahnung' is clearer than in any recording I've heard and allows the listener to hear all the notes distinctly. Kobow sings with great sensitivity to the words, and his articulation, enunciation and phrasing are superb. If you want to hear these songs sung by a tenor, you will find it exceedingly difficult to come up with a more satisfying recording. Kobow's glorious voice alone is reason enough to get it" -American Record Guide
