with Reinild Mees (piano)

“Though distinctly mixed in quality, the songs are finely done here...[Konrad Jarnot's] striking baritone is always neatly and eloquently employed. Amanda Roocroft brings an equally persuasive approach to both text and notes, and accompanist Reinild Mees is excellent throughout.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2010 ****

“Konrad Jarnot leaves a most favourable impression, his timbre fresh and diction impeccable...[Roocroft] sings with infectious ardour...Reinild Mees's accompaniments are past praise in their discerning refinement and shapeliness” Gramophone Magazine, July 2010
