Notes & Reviews:

Sunday Times, 26th May 2013
[Stemme] brings heroic refulgence as well as sensibility to music that luxuriates in the chromatic agony and ecstasy of Tristan und Isolde.

The Arts Desk, 1st June 2013
Surprisingly, these performances don't come across as anaemic, thanks to a very vivid, closely-miked recording...There's no excess fat, but no absence of drive or drama either...Stemme's rapt account of the Wesendonck-Lieder is among the best around.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2013
[The Siegfried Idyll is] performed with a bright morning airiness that recalls its famous premiere...[Stemme's] approach remains expressive and searching, with excellent diction that rides the lighter orchestration effortlessly.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2013
Stemme dominates with the Wesendonck-Lieder, which have all of her customary vocal richness but also an amplitude and approach that's appropriate to the larger scale and broader strokes of opera...Siegfried Idyll is usually heard under chamber orchestra circumstances, and both the quality of the playing and sheen of the strings are up there with the best.

Opera Now
Stemme's singing is glorious throughout and the disc worth hearing for her alone.
