Notes & Reviews:

200 years after his birth, much of the music of Robert Schumann remains to be discovered. For apart from a few songs, piano works and concertos, the four symphonies, and a handful of chamber works, his music is hardly known today to the public. Among the treasures reaming to be discovered are the a cappella choral songs. Schumann himself considered his choral music highly. The raison d'être for the composition of his Romances and Ballads was a result of his conducting activities in Dresden in 1847, during which time Schumann was the musical director of two of the city's choirs. The Vocal Ensemble Stuttgart - regarded as leaders in performance of contemporary choral repertoire, demonstrate that they are more than equal to the expressive demands of Schumann's High Romantic idiom. This is a welcome release with which to celebrate the "Schumann Year."

Classic FM Magazine
Stuttgart's Radio's professional chamber choir gives light and shade to pieces that can easily sound dull..[and] catch the heartfelt sentiment of Schumann's music without mannerism or brashness.
