About

What makes the disc exceptional is not so much the orchestrations as the singing. The songs are shared between Juliane Banse and Dietrich Henschel - great artists both. Banse, with her high, deeply sensual voice, combines worldliness with spirituality and plumbs tremendous depths in her delineation of Mignon's anguish, above all. Henschel, as always, pushes himself to expressive extremes in his search for the emotional truth of each song. Conductor Kent Nagano, always at his best in post-romantic music, is wonderfully sensitive throughout, and the playing is often gorgeous.” - Tim Ashley, The Guardian (13 January 2006)

Henschel has never sounded better. The most fascinating track is the choral version of Der Feuerreiter, superbly sung by the Rundfunkchor Berlin.” - Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times (5 February 2006)

Juliane Banse is perfect, one of the finest lieder singers around…The most thrilling song of all, though, is Der Feuerreiter, sung here by a choir which brings it off to devastating effect.” - Michael Tanner, BBC Music Magazine (February 2006)

It would be hard to imagine finer performances, vocally and orchestrally, than these. Juliane Banse is tender, poignant and sensuous, and rises magnificently to the challenge of Mignon. Dietrich Henschel, often sounding uncannily like Fischer- Dieskau, catches all the tormented yearning of the religious songs, and brings a nonchalant bravado to Der Rattenfänger, where Wolf's garish, glittering orchestration brilliantly enhances the original." - Richard Wigmore, The Daily Telegraph (18 March 2006)
