Notes & Reviews:
If I were condemned to hear only one voice for the remainder of my life I think it might well be hers. If I wanted to be charmed, to laugh or cry I would find her the perfect companion. In her singing on [this disc] we hear someone whose every utterance bespeaks natural sincerity and truthful feeling [... ] Das Lied der Trennung is a template of all she had to offer in this repertory: creamy tone, easy, unruffled legato, the unforced treatment of the text [... ] Abendemfinding ... has all the depth of emotion [... ] Auf dem Wasser zu singen, from a live 1953 recital, has the soul floating over the water with easeful poise. [... ] Brahms's Ständchen has the sense of pure joy that cannot be learnt; it is part of a singer's makeup or it is not. Seefried had it in abundance.
BBC Music Magazine, April 2015
Recorded partly in the studio in 1953 and partly live four years later, the great German soprano Seefried, offering a wide repertoire, regularly hits the artistic heights.
