Notes & Reviews:

"If by chance you already own the formerly "complete" songs of Clara Schumann on a Bayer recording from 1991, with soprano Isabel Lippitz and pianist Deborah Richards, it's time for an update. In the early 1990s, more of Clara's songs were discovered (a process that's ongoing), and this excellent new "complete" collection adds to the canon two previously unpublished pieces and two alternate versions of existing songs. Anyone who cares about lieder singing and repertoire must have this disc.... The sound is warm, clear, and ideally balanced between piano and voice. Eugene Asti must be highly commended for his consistently artful, sensitive, attentive, technically assured performances--absolutely first rate. Song fans--don't delay." -ClassicsToday(10/10)

'Thoroughly recommendable ... fluid, attractive, fully committed performances' (Fanfare, USA)

'[Stephan Loges] brings to his contributions the youthful warmth of his attractively vibrant baritone and his wonderful feeling for line and word ... Lieder singing of the highest calibre ... delightful ... it is good to have all these songs, long hidden in libraries, available on CD' (Gramophone)

'This treasurable CD kicks off my shortlist for 2002 CD of the Year, and will come often off my shelves. Song recital-planners, take note!' (Birmingham Post)

'Perfect diction makes the lyrics shiver with anticipation ... sparkling accompaniment by Eugene Asti' (Independent on Sunday)

'This venture is invaluable, and thoroughly enjoyable' (The Guardian)

'Eloquent singing ... ideally sensitive accompaniments' (Music Week)

'Anyone who cares about lieder singing and repertoire must have this disc ... artful, sensitive, attentive, technically assured performances - absolutely first rate' (ClassicsToday.com)

'All three performers are excellent ... this is a delightful issue; I shall often return to it' (International Record Review)

'I don't know how Hyperion keeps coming up with such fine young talent, but here we go again with another beautifully sung and superbly recorded effort from our English friends ... excellent but seldom heard music, wonderful singing, fine engineering, and Hyperion's well-above-average documentation all add up to a thoroughly enjoyable experience' (American Record Guide)

'un bon argument pour découvrir ces uvres' (Répertoire)
