Notes & Reviews:

"...Marjana Lipovsek is a singer of enormous authority and range; with Graham Johnson she realises the essence of every song...In Songs and Dances of Death, Mussorgsky's greatest achievement in song, Lipovsek reveals huge resources of tone and colour. Just as Mussorgsky loses himself in his subjects, so these great performers become transparent to these uncanny works". -Tanner, Classic CD
