Notes & Reviews:

After only a few years, Janina Baechle has become one of the great mezzo-sopranos of our time. Her debut album as a recitalist documents a song selection both exclusive and unexpected, yet overtly charming. Baechle's intonation is as soulful as it is precise, ravishingly melting with these rarely-heard jewels born out of art nouveau and symbolism.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
When listening, REALLY listening, one's frame of mind, emotional state, and even physical being affect how we hear. There is calmness and a peace in the singing and in the order of the program. Clear, brief, and concise liner notes in German, French, and English.
