'Excellent performances and recording offer superb advocacy of late songs by Schumann and, even more affecting, by Clara … This, the fourth offering of Hyperion Schumann, deserves to be celebrated on various counts: its expert programme-making, the extreme sensitivity of its performers (all three soloists and the London Schubert Chorale), and its advocacy of both late Schumann and of Clara, whose direct simplicity of utterance is so affecting' (Gramophone)

'At a time when the multinational labels fill their booklets with gushing hype about the artists, Hyperion's documentation puts all to shame: as in his Schubert Lieder Edition, Johnson supplies a 100-page essay, devoting at least a page to each song. He is erudite, readable and witty. [The songs] are sung sensitively by Doufexis and Widmer, stylish lieder interpreters with fresh young voices, in this fascinating programme' (The Sunday Times)

'Schumann lovers are more in debt than ever to Hyperion' (Classic FM Magazine)
