Reviews
 

The quality of sound in these latest discs in Stone’s Wolf series is wonderfully vivid and full of presence … Presentation is first-rate … beautifully sung by Daniel Norman … Sarah Jane, aptly fresh, finely controlled … powerfully sung by William Dazeley. Sholto Kynoch is the excellent accompanist throughout. (Gramophone)

The latest instalment in this evolving anthology of Lieder by Hugo Wolf (1860-1903) is the best yet from the enterprising Stone Records, not least because it comprises some of Wolf’s liveliest – and, coincidentally, least-known – songs. The opening Heine group includes the seven Liederstrauss songs, sensitively handled by Norman. This is followed by a couple of Byron and Shakespeare settings, and a plentiful selection of Reinick, whose poetry brought out a genial quality in Wolf. The programme is intelligently varied in pace, content and voice-type, with Dazeley’s baritone providing the most character and Brandon’s soprano the purest lyricism. Their German diction is surprisingly good. **** (Financial Times)
