Hahn: Songs (CD Review - The Sunday Telegraph, 1996)

What treasures are here … The two discs provide an unmissable opportunity to explore a composer who is underrated and overlooked perhaps because he was too modest about himself. There are melodies here which Massenet, Debussy, Fauré and Ravel would have been proud to call their own. No one can fail to have their musical horizon broadened by these discs, which will assuredly come high among my Records of the Year, any year.

RECORD OF THE YEAR. These discs have given me as much pleasure as any I have heard this year ... to hear Felicity Lott in 'Les Etoiles', Susan Bickley in 'Offrande' and Ian Bostridge in 'Tyndaris' is to relish some of the most accomplished vocal artistry of the day
