Notes & Reviews:

Australian soprano Elena Xanthoudakis is forging her career in Europe to many accolades. She has been described as "intoxicating with her cut-diamond clarity of tone, elegant legato, even crescendos and aching trills." (Herald Sun) Accompanied by clarinetist Jason Xanthoudakis and pianist Clemens Leske, brilliant musicians in their own right, this new album from Signum features German romantic pieces for soprano, clarinet, and piano. Especially intriguing amongst these titles, are three world premier recordings: Die gefangene Nachtigall (The Captive Nightingale), Er, der Herrlichste von allen (He, the Noblest of All), and Der Hirt und das Meerweib (The Shepherd and the Mermaid).

Record Review, 14th May 2016
I was really captivated like that nightingale; each track seems to be more lovely than the next, and I have to say that this has a lot to do with the artists here; [Elena Xanthoudakis] a real Rolls Royce of voice here, she is able to do anything that she wants, beautifully matched by the burnished sound of her clarinettist, really first class music making.
