Notes & Reviews:

"What a superb artist Anne Sofie von Otter is! My first reaction while listening to this set is that she is the ideal singer for Korngold's music; then I recall having similar feelings about her Mozart, her Schubert, her Ravel...Von Otter's strong showing makes one forget that more than half of each disc is devoted to chamber music without the voice...This two-disc DG set is highly recommended on several counts, not least its gleaming acoustic." -North, Fanfare
