Notes & Reviews:

Volume seven of Hyperion's Complete Strauss Songs cycle focuses on the juvenilia. But the mysterious TrV references obfuscate compositions of a beauty hard to reconcile with the facts behind their genesis (Strauss was just six when he penned the first of them - his mother had to write in the words for him). Three new singers - Ruby Hughes, Ben Johnson and Günter Haumer - join Roger Vignoles in this most unexpected of recitals to relish.

BBC Music Magazine, Awards Issue 2015
The pleasures are manifold. Even ardent Straussians won't know many of the songs in this mix of juvenilia...[Hughes] is a delight, pure lyric-soprano transparency for the often folksy simplicity of young Richard...[by Von den sieben Zechbrüdern] Johnson has really come out of his shell to relish the operatic narrative of which we know he's capable.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2015
Ruby Hughes's bright soprano is appealing.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
The program is full of delights and offers a wonderful chance to hear how the young Strauss followed the tradition of Schubert and Schumann before venturing into his own musical explorations in the songs we know best. Excellent notes by Vignoles. Texts and translations.
