This fourth volume in our scholarly compendium once more charts Liszt’s life through song (including three settings spanning as many decades of a portentous love-letter the composer received in 1841). Series maestro Julius Drake welcomes the gorgeous Sasha Cooke to Hyperion.

Gramophone Magazine

May 2016

“The later songs, echoing the stripped back idiom of Liszt’s late piano works, hover in territory between melody and recitative, their often hushed vocal lines barely supported by the sparest of accompaniments. Cooke is very much alive to their introversion and sadness. The way she encompasses small gradations in volume over a relatively narrow dynamic range impresses, while Drake makes every chord and phrase shiver with meaning”

BBC Music Magazine

June 2016


“[Sasha Cooke’s] even, expressive voice is equal to all technical demands and rises to tremendous intensity for ‘Wer nie sein Brot mit Tränen ass’ while offering a deeply considered account of ‘Sei still’”
