Accompanied by Eugene Asti, Sarah Connolly sings songs by Haydn, Brahms, Hahn, Korngold and Weill. Her distinctive, intelligent, warm, bright-sounding mezzo-soprano will be enjoyed by her growing 'army' of fans in this rich, romantic repertoire.

'Sarah Connolly presents not only an exqusite hour but a full 75 minutes of French and German song, exquisitely articulated and accompanied. Connolly woos her audience with the calling-card for any and every mezzo: Haydn's Arianna a Naxos. And every second of its nervous and emotional life - its hopes, fears and final despair - are uncovered in Connolly's superbly observant voice and imagination. For Brahms, Connolly and Eugene Asti capture both the tenderly elusive ardour of the folksong, and the finely nuanced legato of those shadowy songs which hover between dream and waking reality. Here, Connolly holds back the words, weighing and weighting them to free the fierce inner passion of a song like 'Von ewiger Liebe'. Her exquisite hour is Verlaine's and Reyanldo Hahn's - and Connolly responds tellingly to this composer's uniquesly sweet-scented archaism.' BBC Music Magazine 

'hugely impressive disc, testifying to the versatility and range of a singer who has already drawn comparisons with Janet Baker.' The Guardian

'one of our most refined mezzos.' The Observer

'A national treasure.' The Evening Standard

'Connolly's lovely singing reaches to the sensuous core.' The Daily Telegraph
