Göran Forsling
MusicWeb International, December 2017

What is a further asset with this production is the outstanding singing of the four soloists. Regula Mühlemann is the only one I have encountered before. She was a “cute and innocent” Barbarina in Nézet-Séguin’s recent Le nozze di Figaro from Deutsche Grammophon, and I greatly admired her recital disc with, mostly, fairly rare Mozart arias, on Sony. She is just as beguiling here. But her colleagues are just as expert at investing these songs with life, meaning and vocal beauty. I would even go as far as saying: even though you are not the least interested in the repertoire you will find great pleasure in savouring these fresh, youthful, well-schooled and expressive singers. Adrian Baianu accompanies meritoriously and the recording, set down in three days, is all one could wish. © 2017 MusicWeb International Read complete review

To us today these songs sound a lot like Brahms. The composers are mostly unknown, but I recognize Reger, D’Albert, Brull, Humperdinck, Schillings, Thuile, and Siegfried Wagner. The music is sweet, and the singers are good. If simple melodies with piano accompaniment appeal to you, this is worth looking into. © 2017 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Pizzicato, June 2017

A nice program of German popular melodies composed by well-known and lesser known composers. The singers catch the spirit of these songs fairly well and they don’t try at any moment to neglect their popular character. © 2017 Pizzicato
