Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
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.
