Richard Lawrence
Gramophone, February 2012

I hadn’t come across these singers before: they are quite wonderful.

…‘Wisst ihr’ begins delicately…the singing has an utterly beguiling freshness. ‘Weit und breit’ is vigorous, the keenly articulated unison of the tutti offset by syncopations in the piano.

The unaccompanied Fünf Gesänge date from the following year. You can almost see the falling leaves of ‘Letztes Glück’, so graphically are they rendered by the choir. In the last stanza of ‘Im Herbst’, the way that Grete Pedersen shapes the lead into the second line compels admiration.

The luscious ‘Amen’, ravishingly sung, is worth the price of the disc.
