Reviews

'Eugene Asti plays with a refreshingly light touch and a lively sense of rhythm' (Gramophone)

‘Hyperion’s series of Mendelssohn’s neglected vocal pieces continues to spread enchantment, thanks in part to young British talent. Katherine Broderick and Hannah Morrison, wonderfully clear and expressive sopranos, top the line-up gathered by Eugene Asti … genius is frequent and Mendelssohn’s charm almost constant’ (The Independent)
Weinend seh’ ich in die Nacht, to an as-yet unidentified text, was composed on 22 December 1828 and not published until 1882 with the title Warum ich weine! (‘Why I weep!’).
