#7 Top 50 Scottish Albums of 2014: 'Scotland's opera superstar mines incredible depth of emotion from these songs.' Alan Morrison, The Herald

Critics' Choice 'Highlight of 2014' Kate Molleson, The Herald

4.5 stars 'Cargill is extraordinary in her control over the scope of these songs... A superb job from a singer who is getting her due.' AllMusic.com

4 stars 'Karen Cargill, warm, instinctive and golden-voiced, and Simon Lepper are responsive partners here.' The Guardian

 

Seldom paired, the well-known Gustav Mahler lieder follow five of wife Alma's lesser-known, but equally engaging, songs. These personal and highly romantic songs are perfectly complemented by Cargill's poetic sensitivity; her warm and vibrant voice, with the emotional insight borne of opera, is breathtakingly beautiful. Simon Lepper accompanies with sensitivity and flair; an award-winning pianist specialising in vocal accompanying, Lepper is a regular recital partner of Cargill's.

Herald Scotland
Pick of 2014: '...Karen Cargill released a breathtaking album of songs by Gustav and Alma Mahler...'

Gramophone (High Fidelity)
'This recital of Lieder by Mr & Mrs Mahler sung by Karen Cargill on Linn is a spine-tingling combination of performance and recording quality.'


International Record Review
'Karen Cargill's voice was made for Gustav's music, and we can now determine that it suits Alma's equally well.'
more >>

Pizzicato
'Der Pianist Simon Lepper ist dagegen fantastisch. Sein Klavierspiel ist enorm feinfühlig und er geht das Wagnis ein, surreale Klänge und impressionistische Farben miteinzubringen, was insbesondere den Liedern von Alma Mahler gut tut.'


BBC Music Magazine
'And Karen Cargill's beautifully integrated, smoky mezzo reveals the full stature of these songs [by Alma], just as Simon Lepper relishes their fearless piano writing.'


The Observer
