Notes & Reviews:

The arrangements of Scottish 'national melodies' (nearly 400 in all) are among the little-known gems of Haydn's last years. Already an acknowledged master of the piano trio medium (as is proved by the inspired Trio Hob. XV:27 also included here), Haydn turned his accompaniments to these songs into miniature chamber music masterpieces brimming with vigor and wit. This recording featuring tenor Werner Güra offers a selection of these works that covers a wide expressive range, from tender love songs to songs rich with sarcastic folk humor.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2014
Their programme, skilfully assembled and delivered at a uniformly high level of vocal-instrumental accomplishment, dips into the massive bran-tub of Scottish folksong settings...above all for the German tenor's warmly lyrical, unfailingly cultivated melodic shaping, the whole enterprise gives continuous pleasure.

Financial Times, 26th April 2014
Gnra doesn't make much of the English words, but it's a pleasure to hear a leading Lieder interpreter championing this undervalued repertoire.

International Record Review, June 2014
[Gura] nicely characterizes the four suitors in Jenny's Bawbee, without overdoing things. And he relishes the longest of the songs, making the ghost ballad of William and Margaret, a sorry tale of masculine infidelity into a sustained drama ... the Trio is beautifully done, and lovely to hear on period instruments and in period style. Would I buy this disc? ... Yes.
