Notes & Reviews:

On a quest between unrequited love, passion and apocalypse, here you can sometimes hear despairing, pausing, but also conciliatory and optimistic songs from Vienna at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The tenor Norbert Ernst and Kristin Okerlund presented selected songs by Austrian composers Franz Schreker, Alexander Zemlinsky and Wilhelm Kienzl. The Wang Valley Songs by the Wiener Neustadt composer Michael Salamon, dedicated in 2010 to Mr. Ernst, were written after seven poems from the cycle The Wang Valley by the greatest Chinese poet of the Tang Dynasty, Wang Wei (around 701 - 61).

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Ernst has established a distinguished career in opera in Vienna, Bayreuth, and internationally. His vocal timbre is sweet and lyric, with plenty of vigor. His technique displays great breath control, the ability to spin out a long well-shaped line, and supreme control of dynamics including a stunning use of decrescendo. It's my first time hearing him, and I look forward to hearing more from him. Okerlund is a gifted collaborator. Her phrasing and shaping of the line brings out the best in these songs. Together they vividly portray the sardonic parody of a military march in 'Mit Trommein und Pfeifen' and pensively depict the death of a soldier after lying wounded for four days in a cornfield in 'Tod in Ahren'.
