Notes & Reviews:

Recorded live at Wigmore Hall, London, on March 27, 2015. Already selected as Gramophone Magazine "Editor's Choice" July, 2016 issue!

Outstanding German baritone Benjamin Appl joins forces with Graham Johnson, one of the world's leading Schubertians, for an exciting recital. Through the course of this program we explore the full expressive gamut of some of Schubert's finest Lieder, recorded live in concert at Wigmore Hall. From the tenderness of 'Am Bach im Frühling' to the dramatic story-telling in 'Der Zwerg' and the tranquility of 'Im Abendrot', Schubert's unparalleled depiction of human emotion is captured in unique clarity.

Financial Times, 28th May 2016
Well recorded and sympathetically accompanied by Graham Johnson ... Appl is expressive and personable.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2016
His instinctive feel for these songs is immediately striking and manifests itself in the sort of artlessness that distinguishes the finest Lieder singers: a lack of tension, an easy relationship with the poetry, a confidence in the words and Schubert's melodies to communicate with nothing but the gentlest helping interpretative hand.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2016
Appl is already and an accomplished Schubertian ... Appl's is a noble baritone and, with the purling pianism of Johnson, he creates a love-song of cool ecstasy to both poet and composer in 'Am Bach im Frnhling'... there is much to admire in Appl's and Johnson's thoughtful and chilling account of 'Der Zwerg'.
