Notes & Reviews:

Julia Brian's warm and generous contralto timbre enables her to perform the works of numerous German and Russian composers including Brahms, Schubert, Schumann, Mahler, Moussorgsky, Rachmaninov and Sviridov.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
This contralto has a lovely, rich quality that matches Brahms's songs quite well. She sounds very dark and full. Her range leads her naturally to the viola songs and the Four Serious Songs. All in all this is a fine recording. The viola songs sound great; Estournet's sound is clearer. The recital is nicely varied by the Gypsy Songs, and the Serious Songs are nicely done. The pianist is also excellent; for proof listen to the first of the Serious Songs, where the passage work is as fine as I've ever heard.
