Notes & Reviews:

On his fourth recording in two years, tenor Daniel Behle performs Strauss' lieder: "I am a lyrical Tenor and as such, one just gets introduced to the Schöne Müllerin, later to the Dichterliebe and eventually to the Winterreise (although I allow myself more time for that one) in the course of one's studies. At the moment I am quite happy to have opened another page besides the lightly lyrical: to dip into the late romantic era and to discover the outgoing, active and hands-on aspects of the period."

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
If you want to hear a tenor with piano accompaniment in these songs, Behle is preferable to both Jonas Kaufmann, whose voice tends to overwhelm the songs (N/D 2006), and the lustrous-voiced Andrew Kennedy, whose tendency to lunge at notes above the staff sometimes detracts from his readings (S/O 2008). Fritz Wunderlich's voice was ideal for this music, and it's a great pity he didn't live long enough to record more songs of Strauss.

BBC Music Magazine, July 2012
Soft, inward rapture for 'Ständchen' is Behle's excellent starting point...An easy confidentiality never allows over-inflection here...Whether or not the studio tells the truth, Behle is also able to bring a heroic sheen to the refulgent climaxes...which makes comparison with Jonas Kaufmann not inappropriate; but in any case this is a tenor with a candid, easy approach all his own.

Sunday Times, 6th May 2012
This thrilling Strauss album makes me want to hear this young German tenor in everything he sings. His light lyric timbre is reminiscent, in its ascents to the stratosphere, of earlier German-speaking tenors (Tauber and Dermota spring to mind). He crowns Cäcilie with a stunning top B...breathtaking work from both singer and pianist.
