Notes & Reviews:

"...[Schafer's] unadorned, clear and imaginitive singing of all the Mozart arias demands and hold attention on this [disc]...Abbado and the Berlin Philharmonic support Schafer in the most refined fashion possible...They are just as ingratiating in Strauss...She is a throwback to, say Elisabeth Schumann, who sang 'Wiegenlied' with just the same kind of artless, silvery beauty...Indeed it's in the last song that one hears...the soprano's special gift of plaintive eloquence." -Gramophone
