Notes & Reviews:

"This disc offers fully satisfying performances of wonderful music. The Mozart concert aria is done to perfection, with graceful contributions by pianist Geza Anda and conductor Otto Ackermann. The Bach cantatas benefit from lovely instrumental accompaniments (check out the breezy oboe and organ in the aria "Sich uben im Lieben") and from Schwarzkopf's characterizations, joyful in the wedding cantata, darker in tone for the heartfelt Mein Herze schwimmt im Blut. Texts and translations complete this release's virtues." -Classics Today (10/8)
