Schneider shows himself as a perfect presenter for the noble love stories of the Viennese aristocracy.
Schneider’s voice has sweetness, but not in excess. His singing is smile-colored and calorie-rich, firm yet not hard. He is good on long and high notes. His German diction is perfect…Schneider sings with equal power in the lower and upper registers, and gets through the sweeping melodic falls and rises with style and ease.
He is joined by soprano Nina Berten in two numbers…Hers is also a faultless operetta voice, natural on the high notes and rounded on the transitions. They sound very well together…
The orchestral support is rich and expressive…the Vienna Salon Orchestra plays with energy and warmth… © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review
