Notes & Reviews:

Elizabeth Grummer was one the outstanding sopranos of the 20th century but only a few of her song recitals were ever recorded, making this CD particularly valuable. Ranking among the 20 most important sopranos of the last century, Grummer rose to prominence in the '50s and '60s as one of the leading lyric sopranos, performing to acclaim on the world's stages. Additionally, she was an outstanding interpreter of song and lied - however, this side of her career was scarcely documented. This recording of a song recital, exactly as she performed it on May 30, 1958 features her regular accompanist, Hugo Diez, as well as a short program of three Mozart arias recorded in 1956 with the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Karl Munchinger.

BBC Music Magazine
The radiant and robust soprano Elisabeth Grümmer made all too few recordings. These... are cherishable.
