Notes & Reviews:

Ruby Hughes and Joseph Middleton do not disappoint in this album dedicated to songs celebrating the Nocturnal. British soprano Ruby Hughes has been hailed as one of operas new stars. She made her debut at the Theater an der Wien in October 2009 in the roll of Roggiero in Tancredi, and since then has been named by Opera Now amongst the list of "Who's Hot In Opera." Pianist Joseph Middleton specializes in accompaniment. BBC magazine described him as 'one of the brightest stars in the world of song and Lieder.' This album includes works from Schubert, Mahler, Berg, and Britten.
