Notes & Reviews:

5 works for chamber orchestra by Krenek were written between 1931 and 1979 - both before and long after Krenek abandoned Hitler's Austria for California. The emotions embraced here range from translucent lyricism, via powerful dramatic utterance, to uneasy existentialist humor - and much of it is very beautiful.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
It is a lovely song where the nightingale explains her superiority to mankind in convincing and poetic terms. The text is by Karl Kraus from his play Cloud-Cuckoo-Land. Zubel sings it with conviction and beauty, being herself a nightingale. The recording is clear and powerful and the orchestral playing is excellent. This is a good investment, presenting mostly late pieces.
