Notes & Reviews:

To mark last year’s 150th anniversary of the birth of Sir Edward Elgar (1857–1934), Channel Classics, in cooperation with the Amsterdam-based Twentieth-Century Song Foundation, has embarked on a project of recording the British composer’s 'Complete Songs' for voice and piano. The eloquent British soprano Amanda Roocroft and English baritone Konrad Jarnot, one of the most promising Lied singers of our time, perform not only such well loved favorites as 'Sea Pictures' (heard here in its first CD recording by a male voice), but also a number of unknown Elgar songs. Partnered by the project’s initiator, the Dutch pianist Reinild Mees, they are among today’s finest champions of this rarely-heard song repertoire.

BBC Music Magazine
Konrad Jarnot is mesmerising in the opening slumber, and with noble tones from pianist Reinid Mills he makes Elizabeth Barrett Browning's 'Sabbath Morning at Sea' more persuasive than I've ever heard it.

Gramophone Magazine
Here's another fresh slant on Elgar's masterly Sea Pictures, this time a most persuasive first recording employing a make voice... With this exemplary diction, unflustered poise and focused tone... Konrad Jarnot forges an instinctive alliance with the admirable Reinild Mees, who accompanies with stylish understanding. Amanda Roocroft... contributes very creditably...
