Notes & Reviews:

In the world of German lieder, Brahms is often overshadowed by Schubert and Schumann. After completing his highly acclaimed series of Schubert lieder recordings, about which Gramophone magazine said, "he touches greatness as a Schubertian," German baritone Matthias Goerne turns to the deeply expressive songs by Brahms. Partnered with Christoph Eschenbach, these two exceptional collaborators reunite for another thoughtfully chosen program.

Record Review, 11th June 2016
They suit Brahms' Vier ernste Gesange, his Four Serious Songs, wonderfully well, that velvety voice seemingly endless reserves of dynamic and expressive power, and a pianist prepared to linger wherever the singer leads, bringing dark shades of his own to the sound...I'll be listening to this again and again.

The Guardian, 30th June 2016
The finest-grained colours come from the piano: Eschenbach knows when to push and when to linger, and he has a lovely knack of catching Goerne at the crest of a phrase and then adding his own quiet commentary.
