Notes & Reviews:
Christiane Karg excels in many genres, from opera to leider, and concert to oratorio, making her one of the most sought after sopranos of our day. This album highlights Karg's finest moments, coupling arias and lieder and offering listeners an well-rounded view of all she has accomplished. "Her tone isn't soft- there's flint in there- but it's smooth and flexible, and she handles it with a cool control that never tilts into chilliness or stiltedness. She's sophisticated but not mannered, and emotion, be it melancholy or delight, reads easily in her voice." (New York Times)
