Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Václav Jan Krvtitel Tomáek wrote numerous songs and short piano pieces. His works predate those of his rather more famous near contemporary Franz Schubert by some years but remain mysterious neglected. This enthralling new album from Renata Pokupic and Roger Vignoles unfolds twenty-eight songs of a rare appeal. Tomáek was one of the very few composers of Goethe settings to meet with the great poet's (relatively) undivided approval.

The Guardian, 10th July 2015
Many of TomßÜek's songs are little gems in their own right, and you can hear why Goethe himself approved of settings including Heldenr÷slein...Pokupic's supple, gleaming mezzo-soprano could use a notch more colour at times, but is eloquent nonetheless, and pianist Roger Vignoles makes each song sound its best.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2015
While TomßÜek had a gift for shapely, oten plaintive melody, in an idiom somewhere between Mozart and Schubert, he never hijacks a poem to create a new musical-dramatic entity, as Schubert famously did... there is much to charm and delight here... [and] the Croatian mezzo Renata Pokupic is a persuasive TomßÜek advocate.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2015
Goethe warmed to [TomßÜek], declaring that his Mignon songs showed true understanding of his poetry... his delightful, often salonesque, piano writing is palpably enjoyed by Roger Vignoles, and Renata Pokupic's winey mezzo, whose slightly accented German and rolled 'r's has an apt flavour and timbre.
