Notes & Reviews:

Roman Trekel's sixth and latest OehmsClassics CD includes many well-known lieder by Richard Strauss as well as the Five Wesendonck Lieder of Richard Wagner. Strauss' Four Last Songs is heard in the much more intimate version with piano accompaniment. Wagner designated two of the Wesendonck Lieder - Im Treibhaus and Tra¨ume - as studies for Tristan and Isolde. Roman Trekel has distinguished himself as one of the most sought-after baritones today. A close collaborator of Staatsoper Berlin and Daniel Barenboim, he has sung to great acclaim on the most important stages of the world.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
One of the leading interpreters of lieder here sings 12 of Strauss's finest songs and then ventures into soprano territory with Strauss's Four Last Songs and Wagner's Wesendonck Songs. The results are mixed. He is mostly excellent in the first 12 songs. With the Four Last Songs you want to hear a voice soaring heavenward. He sings beautifully and sensitively. If you didn't know what it is supposed to sound like, you could probably enjoy this. Konrad Jarnot recorded both the Four Last Songs (J/F 2006) and Wesendonck Songs (M/A 2008) with piano accompaniment and makes a more convincing case for a baritone singing them. Jarnot's appealing voice combines mellifluous beauty and solid strength. Oliver Pohl offers fine accompaniment her.
