Whereas a certain hieratical - nay, sacerdotal figure on Amazon has declared that Elly Ameling cannot sing in pitch on the basis of her vibrato, most of us heathen will revel in the Dutch soprano's fresh, bright and charming tone. Nor is she without interpretative insight (while I cannot imagine her singing Winterreise like Fassbaender, there are plenty of fields to crop in Schubert). Happily, the lieder here, being creations of incandescence, are aligned with her timbre. The highlights here are the ever-fresh Fischerweise (D 881), Seligkeit (D 433) the Romanze from Rosamunde (D 797) and the immortal Ave Maria (D 839). The latter in particular is starry enough to summon life from dust. All songs sound newly minted. Dalton Baldwin, her accompanist, is sensitivity itself (even if more vigour could be evident in Die Junge Nonne). The vintage Philips recording is superb.

Sport, this is a lay down misère.

Breathtaking 17 Aug. 2000
By A. Zemach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is surely one of the most beautiful CDs I own. Ameling imbues the music with such emotion, she easily takes the listener with her any place she wants to go. Unlike some other lieder CDs I have, the songs here are easy to connect to: from the very first listen I knew I was in for something special. If you derive even the slightest pleasure from the human voice, you must get this CD!

Thoroughly delightful 10 Jan. 2000
By David N Levy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I can't claim to be a trained critic, but these are surely some of the most beautiful songs ever written, and Ameling's performance seems worthy of them. Highly expressive without excess, her voice seems perfectly to capture everything from the gay to the pathetic.

Brilliant! 18 Aug. 2007
By Warren P. Reier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My wife and I were privileged to hear her in person a number of times. We would leave her concerts in a daze, with tears running down our faces.

Her dark, tempestuous "Die junge Nonne" with its gorgeous allelujah, her passionate and bewitched "Gretchen am Spinnrade", her fresh and joyous "Im Grünen", are very nearly indescribable. It is music (and literature!) of the very highest order.

There is no one even remotely like her. Her pure, almost vibrato-less voice is at the command of peerless musicianship and profound understanding of the text! "You will fall in love with the human voice all over again," as someone once said of a certain beautiful Dowland recording.

There are many people who sing Schubert with intelligence and taste; there are many fine voices among them--but Elly Ameling is incomparable!!

A virtually perfect lieder recital... 2 Nov. 2014
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase

This recording comprises the very definition of a virtually perfect lieder recital.

Elly Ameling's vocal purity and tastefully moderated execution are a marvel.

Dalton Baldwin is okay--subtle underneath Ameling, not wishing to steal her fire.

The recorded ambience is very nice.

The playbill is of course a list of favourites, reaching a `climax' of sorts with Ellens Gesang and its Sebastien Bach-like emotive air of faithful devotion.

This could be `baby's first lieder' disc.

(P.S.: A certain serial `reviewer' round these parts was caught-out pronouncing Ameling as `a footnote of lieder singing': surely yet another arrogant absurdity of a basement-dweller with a keyboard: don't believe everything you see on the internet.)
