Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
That takes 35 minutes. The other half-hour or so is songs, and Strauss wrote gorgeous songs - and they are gorgeously sung here by Lisa Larsson. The accompaniments are shimmering and tender - a bit too much so.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2012
[Boyd] and his players (not least the pianist) deliver this Bourgeois gentilhomme Suite rather in the manner of Strauss's own recordings...The Vier letzte Lieder are sung, and accompanied, in exactly the opposite manner to the over-groomed and static big-hall treatment.

MusicWeb International, August 2012
The present performance [of Le bourgeois gentilhomme] is worth hearing for its very particular qualities. It has wit and charm, both essential here. Unsurprisingly it has the merit of superb and very well balanced modern recording quality. Above all it essentially has the sense of a chamber work...[Larssons' Four Last Songs] is certainly well considered and generally convincing if perhaps lacking in the last ounce of conviction.
