Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
Karnéus is delightfully taut of rhythm in 'Blicke mir nicht in die Lieder', which she places first. And the orchestral accompaniment here is painstaking.

Gramophone Magazine
The split threads of Mahler's orchestral nerve-ends are teased so thoroughly and with such interest by the orchestra and the BIS engineers that more than several listenings are required to assimilate them. Susanna Mälkki favours an Expressionist level of detail that casts louring shadows over even the blue flowers and green fields of the Wayfarer's first song...Karnéus is a secure and heartfelt interpreter.

International Record Review
Karnéus is at her best in one or two obvious places, and one or two less obvious ones...['Ich bin der Welt'] seldom fails in performance, and here her warm mezzo spins an ethereal thread of golden tone that perfectly matches the sentiments...['Um Mitternacht'] is heart-rending, and the great cry of the final stanza is magnificent...the playing of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra throughout is as other-worldly as Mahler might have dreamed.

Sunday Times
She sings them as beautifully as any contemporary female interpreter, with her smoky vocal colouring, her careful enunciation of the texts and her feeling for the heart-rending pathos of the music...there is a unity of purpose in these readings that makes them a must-hear for dedicated Mahlerians.

The Telegraph
The recorded sound is wonderful, and Finnish conductor Susanna Mälkki coaxes a sound of golden warmth from her Swedish orchestra. Swedish mezzo-soprano Katarina Karnéus makes a sound as rich and glossy as a thoroughbred's coat.
