Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
[Norman is] grand, impassioned, noble, dignified, unmannered in this unforgettable interpretation.

James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, April 2014
So many superb performances of these songs to choose from, but in the end I always find myself coming back to Jessye Norman. Kurt Masur's tempos are often dangerously slow, and yet Norman's unfailingly creamy tone and her ability to sing seemingly endless phrases translate into performances of utter beauty and conviction.
