Reviews

'The collaboration of Keenlyside and Johnson is so potent that after an hour one is still ready for more' (Gramophone)

'No singer has sung them so beautifully or so naturally as Simon Keenlyside' (BBC Music Magazine)

'The young English baritone's gorgeous timbre now sounds in prime condition and his understanding of the German Lied is second to none. His programme, too, is characteristically adventurous. Johnson, too, is deeply immersed in this music and his 82-page booklet is a collector's item.' (The Sunday Times)
