    "This generous collection . . . offers up essentially all of the composer’s so-called classical art songs. . . . Pianist Timothy Hoekman . . . is a superb partner to both singers, and he seems to relish the rich opportunities presented to him by these colorful songs. He demonstrates the utmost sensitivity and delicacy when that is called for, but can also summon up thundering power or luscious warmth. He seems to have every conceivable musical color at his disposal." - Journal of Singing
