Notes & Reviews:

The Reisebuch aus den österreichischen Alpen, Ernst Krenek's wonderful travelogue, is a real tour de force. It is a fusion of the remembrance of things past - the Schubertian landscape of Austria and its cultural history - with the music of the 1920s. The very special demands it makes of its performers are effortlessly negotiated by world-class baritone Florian Boesch and the inimitable Roger Vignoles. Four songs by Alexander von Zemlinsky complete the program.

The Guardian, 1st September 2016
A real treat, and confirms Krenek's cycle as one of the great early modernist additions to the German lieder tradition...Boesch and Vignoles evoke this kaleidoscope of styles with fabulous naturalness and fierce dramatic intensity when needed.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2016
The tone of voice, so perfectly captured by Floraian Boesch's securely focused yet nonchalant baritone, is very much that of the so-called 'new objectivity' of the 1920s... the piano accompaniments, lucidly and energtically wrought by Roger Vignoles, add little emotioinal subtext, and the tone of coice makes us feel we are eavesdropping on a private conversation with the self.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2016
It would be fair to say that Boesch has done nothing finer on disc. This is exceptional Lieder singing, fusing line, text and dynamics into an indivisible whole, all of it delivered with a conversational intimacy that is often breathtaking. The emotional ambivalences are finely projected, as sadness, dismay and anger are repeatedly undercut by self-deprecating wit and humour.
