5.0 out of 5 stars Ravishingly beautiful, 6 Nov 2008
This is a quite stupendous disc. It features some wonderful songs by Schubert ravishingly sung by Elizabeth Watts with some unbelievably sensitive piano playing by Roger Vignobles. Miss Watts is one of the brightest young international stars on the circuit as those who watched her win the Lieder prize at the BBC Singer of the World competition in Cardiff will testify. One of her most amazing strengths is the ability to create the most stunning and beautiful pianissimo high notes which she uses to great effect to characterise many of these settings. A "must-have CD" to add to the collection.
