Notes & Reviews:
The sophistication and precise diction that characterized Moll's greatest roles reminded one that he was a singer who also paid equal attention to the lied. His 1982 recording of Schubert's Winterreise is now available on a single CD for the first time. Moll offers what the international press of the day hailed as an exemplary recording of perhaps the most famous song.
MusicWeb International, 5th July 2013
His glorious voice is as sleek and smooth as a steel blade sheathed in black velvet; instantly recognisable and almost sui generis - you would never mistake Moll for another singer...No devotee of this song-cycle will want to be without this magnificent version.
American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Garben pays attention to the markings, and his playing is deeply expressive and flexible while remaining in perfect agreement with Moll. Everything about this performance is so outstanding that you can't go wrong adding it to any other readings of Winterreise you treasure. Thoughtful notes by Petra Weber-Bockholdt look at Winterreise in the context of Schubert facing his own death. Texts and translations.
