BBC Music Magazine

May 2006


“In Six Songs and A Simple Song Grieg infuses the folky, exuberant style with deeper feeling and an airy energy, which Groop and Vignoles capture very persuasively…”

Gramophone Magazine

June 2006

“The Op 49 Poems (Drachmann texts again) constitute a minor masterpiece, a cycle of the pains of love through the seasons that would enrich any Lieder singer's repertoire. Groop and Vignoles are masters of what they have chosen to survey. Groop knows precisely how far to take her vocal characterisation of the many forlorn lovers... Vignoles's bright, direct and alert playing feels totally idiomatic.”
