Notes & Reviews:

"The major work in Lorraine Hunt-Lieberson's recital is the five Ruckert settings of Mahler, whose orchestrally conceived piano parts are realised by Roger Vignoles. The mezzo's greatest single strength is a voice of the highest quality, possessing a depth of tone and a richness of colouring that enable her performances to stand comparison with those of Baker or Ferrier. Like those two artists, there's a rounded humanity to her singing that rises in places to genuine nobility. Her line in 'Ich atmet' einen linden Duft' is perfectly realised, while her vocal breadth and interpretative insight in 'Um Mitternacht' present Mahler's spiritual vision on a grand scale." -BBC Music (Choral and song Choice of the Month, April 2007).
