Notes & Reviews:

The protagonists of this recording - Elisabeth Kulman, Bo Skovhus and Sebastian Weigle - have brilliantly rescued from oblivion a composer whose works have retained their capacity to move us. Hans Sommer's compositions speak a vivid and personal language which, while close to Wagner and Richard Strauss, already points to the orchestral songs of Mahler, Wolf and Berg. Above all, this is sensuous music, thrilling from beginning to end.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
The performances are terrific. Kulman and Skovhus each sing 10 songs, and both are in excellent voice. Kulman in particular has an intoxicatingly lovely voice that she uses with great suppleness. The scoring is modest and does not make great demands on the players but calls mostly for quiet subtlety, which the Bamberg Symphony offers perfectly well. Here is an opportunity to discover some unjustly neglected music performed exquisitely.
