Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Brahms completed his only song cycle Die Sch÷ne Magelone in 1869. Using Ludwig Tieck- 's quasi-medieval "novella" written in prose and verse, Die Wundersame Liebesgeschichte der Sch÷nen Magelone und des Grafen Peter von Provence (The wondrous love story of the beautiful Magelone and Count Peter of Provence'), Brahms selected 15 of Tieck's 18 song texts to set. Behle and Bjelland give a fine performance. It is a two-CD set, the list price is $18.99. If you want to hear this sung by a tenor, try Pregardien's recording with Staier on fortepiano. His voice has almost the same weight as F-D's and it is a wonderful performance.

This double CD combines Brahms' Romances, op. 33 with Romances from Ludwig Tieck's 'Magelone'. The first CD offers the song cycle without the prose text, the second CD presents a sensitive abridgement of Tieck's text by Hans-Jürgen Schatz. With these romances, Brahms reached a new compositional level. The songs, seemingly move completely independently of external influences; Schubert's songs might have acted as models in many passages. Sometimes, people even speak freely about 'Brahms' sole opera'.

Sunday Times, 22nd June 2014
Behle is one of the brightest storytellers among young Lieder singers.

The Guardian, 26th June 2014
The mixture of refined passion and gung-ho heroics places it beyond the range of most singers, though it holds no terrors for Behle. A lightness in his tone, combined with the clarity of Bjelland's playing, prevents the piece from becoming stolid as it sometimes does.
