5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Gift for a Baby! 24 Feb 2005
By J Scott Morrison HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Our family has just been blessed with a new grandson and one of my very thoughtful friends had the brilliant and generous idea to send the baby a copy of this wonderful collection of lullabies and nightsongs done so stunningly by the marvelous Austrian mezzo, Angelika Kirchschlager. I am happy to report that the very first selection, Schubert's 'Wiegenlied' ('Cradle Song'), seemed to make him smile, even at his tender age. This bodes well for his developing discriminating musical taste because Ms Kirchschlager is a terrific singer. Her various accompanists provide sensitive support for her lovely and perfectly managed voice. She sings with impeccable diction in several languages and even in English I don't pick up any accent at all.

I must point out, however, that Amazon has listed the contents of this disc in an order different from that on the CD.

Schubert's leider are a bit off my agenda but liking one of Angelika's other tracks I decided to look at some of her other work. Must play whole CD soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is exquisite!! 5 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an exquisite CD - Kirchschlager has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard and the repertoire is wonderfully unhackneyed. This will appeal to all lovers of fine singing, but I do agree that babies and parents of same would find it especially appealing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Angelika Kirchschlager 19 Dec 2010
Format:MP3 Download
This recording by the Austrian Mezzo Soprano is the best I have heard and is exemplified by her varied background. The Mozarteum in Saltzburg and the Vienna Music Academy worked well with Angelika's strengths to enrich the lives of all who hear her.
The annual Lieder festival in Vorarlburg is regularly attended by Angelika. Get there if you can.
For me the juxtaposition between mezzo and soprano the lightness of touch,strength and fragility have never been bettered in the concert hall or on record.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Voice to Bring Peace to the World 5 Jan 2000
By DaveBo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As a parent of a new baby and a classical music afficionado, I was delighted to find When Night Falls; it is now a favorite of my daughter and myself. Kirschlager's phrasing is nothing short of phenomenal, making even the simple Brahm's lullaby (#3 on the CD) more compelling and emotional. Her warm tones are especially complimented where the viola and cello are present (try #s 4 and 5). Can German lyrics be light and lilting? Yes, when Kirchschlager sings them. This CD is a great way to expose your baby to classical music, AND get him/her off to dreamland.

5.0 out of 5 stars Voice of an Angel 2 May 2000
By William Thacker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was first introduced to Ms. Kirchlager three years ago and was instantly impressed. Her sumptuous voice and incredible beauty make her a delight to listen to, time and time again. When Night Falls, is only the most recent of what promises to be a long and impressionable career. From the ever popular "Edelweiss" to the easily recognizable "Wiegenlied", Ms. Kirchschlager approaches each song with the same heart-felt emotion as if she were singing to her own child. I have often listened to her CD late at night to help myself fall into my own sweet dreamland of "The Little Horses".

5.0 out of 5 stars Lullabies for Young and Old 21 Mar 2000
By Giselle E. Whitwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This recording of lullabies stands out because of the exquisite musical sensibility it brings to each song. Angelika Kirschschlager's voice is so transparent and pure, so expressive, it delights both children and adults. The diverse instrumentation adds variety to the otherwise well known repertoire, even if the balance is not always a happy one as for example the Brahms "Gestillte Sehnsucht". The artist has succeeded in presenting the well known form of "lullabies" to a wider audience through her high artistic vision and execution.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gentle crossover that gets a bit sleepy 1 Jun 2006
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When Sony's artist executives were German, they tried to promote the young Austrian mezzo Angelika Kirchschlager, but because of her difficult name (I am guessing) and the slackening classical music market, she never caught on. Today Kirchschlager is a star in Europe, and one sees her name on the Met roster. This, her second CD, is a gentle recital of lullabies, made more varied by adding Broadway tunes into the mix and bringing in star musicians like John Williams on guitar and Yuri Bashmet on viola.

The result is winning and thoroughly professional. Kirchschlager sings especially well in English, with a hybrid British-American accent but almost no German mannerisms. The closest comparison in terms of high mezzos would be with von Otter, and Kirchschlager's voice is at least as beautiful. But she lacks von Otter's imaginaiton, and after a while everything sounds a bit too square and placid--after all, these songs may be for babies, but the intended audience is also adults who go to lieder recitals, isn't it?
