Notes & Reviews:

"The thing that strikes the ear immediately is Parry's concern to project his texts, which are far from being simply pegs for his melodies, as Brahms's were on occasion; instead, he frequently gives his often Brahmsian piano writing a Wolf-like degree of liberty (before Wolf!) to set the scene and to comment on the vocal line as it unfolds...Every song has something attractive about it...Stephen Varcoe's is a light, lyric baritone...Strongly recommended." -Anderson, Fanfare

'Une heure d'absolu ravissement' (Diapason)

"The great advantages of this new set are Juliane Banse's exquisitely coloured performance in the central role of the Goosegirl, Klaus Florian Vogt's as the prince with whom she falls in love, and above all Christian Gerhaher's carefully modulated performance as the fiddle-playing minstrel, crystallising the opera's prevailing mood of gentle melancholy in his closing elegy for the dead lovers." -The Guardian
