Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine, March 2013
One of the greats. The most of all Schreier's Schwanengesang recordings, and with a previously unpublished performance of 'Auf der Strom' as a bonus.
Gramophone Magazine, February 2013
This is a wonderful disc by any standard. Indeed, the partnership of Schreier and Schiff [is] a masterstroke of Decca ... [Schreier's] performances of the Heine settings ... have become so anguished as to expose every nerve end in their depiction of lost love, and Schiff's realization of the piano's role seconds the singer's probings perfectly. [... ] This is really a 'must' for any Lieder collection.
One of the most compelling recordings ever of Schwanengesang ... The recording is vividly real.
