Notes & Reviews:

Chen Reiss's début album Liaisons was internationally acclaimed for both the repertoire selection and the sheer brilliance of her musicianship. For her second Onyx release, Reiss is joined by the acclaimed pianist Charles Spencer for a wonderful collection of songs on the subject of The Nightingale and the Rose. These songs convey the magic of being in love, the heartbreak of love lost, the memories, the fun, the fantasies all associated with that strange, mysterious, dangerous and all-powerful condition. In repertoire that ranges from Purcell to Krenek, Hahn to Meyerbeer and from Grieg to Rimsky-Korsakov, this is a program tailor-made for Reiss's remarkable voice. One listen and it will seduce you.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2013
Reiss fields a supple, vernal lyric-coloratura that soars without strain or hardness into the stratosphere. Discerningly partnered by Charles Spencer, she can spin a pure legato and always phrases musically, with rubato growing naturally from the curve of the line and the flux of the harmony...this is a more-than-promising recital from a soprano whose vocal ease and allure make her an artist to watch.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2013
It is a measure of her gifts that Chen Reiss takes all these composers in her stride. That vocal stride is impressive: sustained lyric tone that is only rarely forced...Charles Spencer is as ever the perfect partner.
