Notes & Reviews:

"The stillness achieved in the song which deals with the coming of the couple's child, 'Sußer Freund', is spellbinding, and the profundity of the expression of pain in the final song, after the protagonist has been widowed, is remarkable. Drake rounds off the cycle with an unfussy performance of the postlude, notable for its sensitivity and clarity. This is a hugely effective performance of the work which is characterised chiefly by an approach which places absolute trust in the composer, and appears to seek to realise his instructions as faithfully and simply as possible." -MusicalCriticism.com
