Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Eugene Asti's pioneering Mendelssohn song series, which contains a wealth of fi rst recordings and rarities, concludes with this specially priced two CD set. The content ranges from Mendelssohn's first extant composition of any kind - a birthday song presented to his father by the precocious ten-year-old composer - to settings of the German romantic poets Schiller, Goethe and Eichendorff which place Mendelssohn firmly in the canon of the great Lieder composers. These works are performed by a talented group of young singers who will be familiar from other discs in the series, including the winner of the 2008 Kathleen Ferrier prize, Katherine Broderick.

'Hyperion's series of Mendelssohn's neglected vocal pieces continues to spread enchantment, thanks in part to young British talent. Katherine Broderick and Hannah Morrison, wonderfully clear and expressive sopranos, top the line-up gathered by Eugene Asti ... Genius is frequent and Mendelssohn's charm almost constant' (The Independent)

'Eugene Asti plays with a refreshingly light touch and a lively sense of rhythm' (Gramophone)

Gramophone Magazine
The best of the young singers here is the mezzo Anna Grevelius...As in previous volumes, Eugene Asti plays with a refreshingly light touch and a lively sense of rhythm.

International Record Review
It is perhaps invidious to single out any one or two [singers], but Grevelius and Bjarnason are magnificent, and Rutherford and Loges are not far behind. Of course, the real hero is at the piano: Asti, at the end now of a remarkable musical journey. This is indeed a labour of love, and one that we can all applaud - and share.
