'The second volume of Hyperion's complete Brahms songs is the generous and imaginatively planned anthology that we have come to expect from these important series compiled by Graham Johnson—witness his excellent Schubert and Schumann series. And it comes, as ever, with richly cross-referenced notes and essays' (BBC Music Magazine)
