Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
Maltman brings a light touch to 'Liebesbotschaft', beautifully complemented by the filigree of Johnson's accompaniment...The second encore, 'Der Winterabend', culminates in Johnson's right hand doubling and counterpointing the vocal line - magical.

BBC Music Magazine
Both singer and accompanist are on far better form, for me, than they were in Winterreise...These are direct, uncluttered accounts of songs of varying quality, and the deepest - 'Am Meer', 'Der Doppelganger' - get appropriately weighty treatment, while others, such as the last, are delightfully light.

International Record Review
Maltman has a very beautiful light baritone voice and sings Schubert with undemonstrative perceptiveness and much musical intelligence...This is fine recording of Schwanengesang, the accompaniment occasionally somewhat insensitive but Maltman's singing hard to fault.

The Guardian
There's an uncompromising emotional rawness in Maltman's singing in Der Atlas, Die Stadt and Der Doppelgänger that make for very disquieting listening. But it's not all angst: he's sexy in Ständchen and humorous in Die Taubenpost. Johnson, meanwhile, is exemplary, reminding us throughout of the genius of Schubert's piano writing.
