Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Hyperion's Strauss Lieder series continues to demonstrate that the composer's achievements in this genre are among the most fascinating and accomplished of his works. This latest volume includes the delicious Schlechtes Wetter from Op.69 and the lovely - and unknown - Waldesfahrt from the same group. The delicately beautiful Malven, with which the recital ends, is known as Strauss's "Fifth Last Song." The central work recorded here, Krämerspiegel, owes its genesis to Strauss's long-lasting and bitter dispute with the German music publishing industry. Roger Vignoles is the curator and pianist of this series, and also writes the informative booklet notes. Making her Hyperion debut is soprano Elizabeth Watts.

BBC Music Magazine, March 2013
As well as showing her ability to weave around a wide-ranging phrase, apparent in the first song on the disc, 'Einerlei', and incorporating a useful chest voice, she shows a wicked penchant for donning joke fangs in the song cycle.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Soprano Watts won the 2007 Lieder Prize at the Cardiff Singer of the World Competition. Here we hear why. She is already a mature, major artist: just the right kind of voice for Strauss, a sumptuous, soaring dark soprano sound that caresses the ear with sheer vocal beauty, combined with confidence, musical finesse, and textual imagination. Pianist Vignoles heads up this Strauss project and plays with supreme command, technique, and love of the music.
