2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Mark A. Meldon TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase
After originally appearing on Teldec some years ago Schubert: Lieder, on the Warner Elatus label Lieder (Parsons, Bonney) and, more recently on Warner's short-lived "Maestro" series Schubert - Lieder, this lovely recording has now been released on Warner's super-budget Apex imprint.

Here we have a carefully planned and varied selection of better-known pieces with the trademark purity of tone from the singer. Ably supported by Geoffrey Parsons on the piano and, briefly, Sharon Kam on the clarinet, this superbly recorded disc has long been a favourite with critics.

As with most of the more recent Apex releases there are no meaningful notes and the lack of sung texts is a pain, hence a 4* review.

All-in-all, a highly recommended bargain!

If I say I knew what this recital was going to sound like before I played it, I in no way mean that as a criticism. Barbara Bonney has a voice of purity and steadiness to match those of Sumi Jo and Kathleen Battle; she rarely disappoints having been so wise in her career and role choices and Schubert suits her ideally. If there is any problem here, it is the inevitable lack of colouring in a high, crystalline lyric soprano of this type compared with mezzos and baritones and the fact that Apex provide no texts - but what do you expect in a super-bargain release? She is admirably accompanied by the experienced Geoffrey Parsons, who was also Margaret Price's regular partner and knows just how to spin out Schubert's long melodic lines. Nor is there any danger of longueurs in the extended "Der Hirt auf dem Felsen" when it is sung and played as beguilingly as it is here.

No surprises in the selection - we even begin with the most popular of all Schubert's songs - but all are done with such consummate art that it is like hearing them afresh; the Mignon songs are especially moving with those heart-wrenching shifts into the minor. Bonney was always a supreme linguist; both her enunciation and intonation are flawless. This is a recital to set alongside those by Battle, Fleming and Price; Schubert could not be better served.

Bonney's best lieder recording, a model of Schubertian style 25 Jun. 2012
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Note: This review is a repeat of the one written for the original release of this CD.

Barbara Bonney was 38 when she made this breakthrough Schubert recording in 1994. That's worth mentioning because high, light voices age quickly, and in her later Decca recordings, made in her forties, she doesn't sound as full-toned and in control as here. The voice is impeccable for Schubert, richer than Battle's in the lyric-colortura range and therefore capable of reaching deeper than a soubrette emotionally.

Bonney is also that rare American singer who seems to know what German means and can immerse herself in Romantic style, making her the equal of Dawn Upsahw among her generation. Both are fresh interpreters with a respect for lieder tradition. Bonney is also gifted with one of those voices, again like Upshaw's, which sound alluring and lustrous. Her selections here include only Schubert chestnuts; one is grateful that room was found on this generous (72 min.) CD for the Shepherd on the Rock with clarinet accompaniment. Bonney sings it exquisitely, in a class with Benita Valente and Kathleen Battle, my other favorites in this achingly sublime work. A total success.

Bad product, bad luck in this time. 16 Aug. 2014
By Roberto Valenzuela Reyes - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Bad product, it's no possible to hear any song or melody with sound fidelity. It's the first time, 30 or 40 CD's before from Amazon, that the recording is corrupt.
