CRITIC REVIEWS:

“This documents Prey’s recital at the Schwetzingen Festival on May 15, 1963. The program is an interesting one….the rarities make a fine impression….Prey was in excellent voice back in 1963.”

- Paul L. Althouse, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, Sept./Oct., 2011



“This is a wonderfully balanced recital, combining familiar repertoire with works from lesser known composers; all beautifully interpreted by Prey in his prime. Every performance by Prey deserves attention from the serious vocal collector. Hermann Prey (1929-98) was one of the most admired singers of his time for his work in opera and, even more so, for his singing of lieder….Prey’s opera performances were characterized sometimes by unique yet convincing interpretations as well as by his smooth, solid technique and beautiful voice.”
