Those of us who believe that the “Herrlichsten” and “Mondnacht” sufficiently sum up Robert Schumann’s art songs will be all the wiser after hearing the wonderful performance on this disc by Vivian Hanner (mezzo-soprano) and Frank Peter (piano): In celebration of the Schumann anniversary year, the two artists of course present these two gems of from the German song repertoire, but place them within a larger context. And it is not just these famous songs which demonstrate their original force within the Eichendorff cycle and the opus 42 Frauenliebe und -leben. The agility and warmth of Vivian Hanner's singing and diaphanous tone of Frank Peter’s accompaniment breathe a warm glow into both song cycles. Romantic art songs performed to perfection!

"Together with Frank Peter the soprano has recorded not only the Eichendorff cycle and Frauenliebe und Leben but also the late cycle Sieben Lieder von Elisabeth Kulmann, Op. 104. A discovery which is deserving of thanks to the two Leipzig musicians."
