Notes & Reviews:

MusicWeb International
Christine SchSfer brings concentration and poise to each of these songs, and sings seemingly effortlessly in her exquisite high lyric soprano ... There is no feeling of routine in these studio performances and the accompaniments by Irwin Gage are exemplary in their equal sensitivity and well balanced by Rainer Maillard, who does not suppress the piano at all at climaxes ... A first class CD, recommended unreservedly.
