Notes & Reviews:

"Now in her 40's, Schafer is still absolutely sublime and a true artist. Her voice is exquisite here- as is her interpretation. Listen to her sensual delivery of the text in 'Um Mitternacht'- breathtaking. She is able to change the timbre of her voice from rich and vibrant to smooth and breathy in just a moment. Eschenbach and the Berlin players accompany with sensitivity and a refined sound. The balance is perfect, with Schafer always present just above the orchestra. The final phrase from 'Ich Bin der Welt Abhanden Gekommen' is the epitome of effervescent voice quality and sensitivity of interpretation. The text reads, 'I am dead to the world's tumult, and I rest in a quiet realm! I live alone in y heaven, in my love and in my song!' The orchestra gently hangs onto her every word. This is regal and heavenly music-making."-American Record Guide

International Record Review
[Schäfer's] performances exude the sense of discovery of a wide range in individual emotions that runs through these songs; her tonal qualities are admirable and she is excellently balanced with the orchestra, which plays outstandingly well for her.
