Alan Swanson
Fanfare, March 2008

A good surprise has its own pleasure. This recording contained two. First, in one of those ironies by which we all live, this collection of songs by Hermann Zilcher (1881–1948) arrived on his birthday anniversary. Second, these songs turn out to have much to offer the listener who wants to go comfortably off the main road.

There is a third pleasure in this disc, and that is the accomplished and pleasing voice of Konrad Jarnot. He is not a young Fischer-Dieskau, but his sound leans in that direction and he has some of the latter’s interpretive traits. This is a singer I want to hear more of. © 2008 Fanfare Read complete review
