"I haven't heard all the volumes of the Naxos edition, but of those I've encountered, this one is the most satisfying so far. It is heartily recommended, and the performance of 'Auf der Bruck" (with the wonderful, driving pianism of Ulrich Eisenlohr) is, by itself, worth the purchase price. Naxos includes interesting notes (which go a good way toward justifying the organization of this series by poet!) with text and translations."
"This is one of the most exciting, irresistible Schubert song discs around V and itÝs cheap too! Hanno Muller-Brachmann is a fine baritone in the Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau tradition. Pianist Ulrich Eisenlohr, masterminding the exciting ongoing Naxos Schubert series, has done a magnificent job with this one."
