Notes & Reviews:

"Karita Mattila... was one soprano whose reading of the 'Four Last Songs' I eagerly awaited... she would never diminish these languid, expansive melodies with any strain or hurry; she is equal to their grandeur... there would be no hectic edge, but an effortless, open quality... she does not overwhelm, but rather draws the listener in- particularly in 'September', where voice and horn are controlled in a magical hush..." -Wallace, BBC music magazine *****
