"This disc is an impressive testimony to many things about Elisabeth Schumann, qualities of character as well as of sensitivity, intelligence and, of course, vocal purity....Expertly transferred by Mark Obert-Thorn, and with a perceptive frank and moving memoir by Joy Puritz, the singer's grand-daughter...."


“[Schumann] was the last great concert singer of noble tradition. Blessed is the invention of the recording machine! Many of her lieder are captured forever and will delight many generations to come….Hers was the infinitely fine and perfect glow of purity. Her concerts were a lesson in style and beauty.”

- Lotte Lehmann, in Puritz’ ELISABETH SCHUMANN, p.342

"They're very collectable, these Romophone complete editions. Up they go on the shelves, and you know that there is another small but quite important area in the history of singing on records properly covered, ready for reference at any time, and reference that will be a pleasure because the standard of transfer is so reliable." - J. B. Steane, GRAMOPHONE, Feb., 1995
