Though clearly deeply considered, Fink's readings here have a simplicity and directness coupled with an expressive intensity that cuts right to the heart of these songs. With her smooth control, her opulent tone, and her supple vibrato, Fink has a beautiful voice and an exquisite technique and she puts it wholly at the service of the music.

Nothing precious about Bernarda Fink’s approach to lieder: with her lovely multicoloured mezzo voice she takes the direct route to a song’s heart every time. Lost love, hope and death dominate a programme of the familiar and less known, with seven Goethe texts, four by R?ckert and some small fry. Gerold Huber’s piano conveys its own dappled magic in a CD whose only fault lies in the listener’s need to take a breather.

Bernarda Fink's album is a self-contained recital, which places familiar songs alongside lesser known pieces, much as you might expect to hear in a concert hall. Fink's recital proves problematic on several counts. Too many of her chosen songs are slow in tempo, and most are examinations of melancholy, all of which gives the disc a drift towards the depressive.

Bernarda Fink is one of the best lieder singers of today, and this Schubert album is truly outstanding. She has a wonderful, almost "reedy" sound and the selections are some of Schubert's best. Pianist (Huber) is also excellent. Now 53 but sounding much younger, Bernarda Fink comes to Schubert by an odd route, having been born in Beunos Aires of Slovenian parents. She's assured in German, however, and her light lyric mezzo could easily be called a soprano. Since Fink's forte has been Baroque music, one doesn't expect her to be deeply involved with Romantic style - indeed, this is decidedly chaste, classically restrained Schubert. I am not a fan of that approach, and in almost every song Fink seems to underinflect and to skate over many expressive opportunities
