International Record Review

July/August 2011


“This is an absolutely astonishing recording in many respects...Emma Curtis's tone is remarkably pure throughout her very wide range...she sings [Der Abschied] magnificently, so musically and profoundly intelligently...she has an equal accompanist in Brennan Guillory, whose account of his more dramatic songs is infused with great discipline and dignity...David Stout is an admirable interpreter of the youthful songs, beautifully sung and well characterized”

Gramophone Magazine

December 2016

“This set obviously outguns Glass’s own recordings – in terms of notes if not of historical aura – and, given that it’s been released on his own label, the composer clearly agrees”
