Press quotes

“... this recital ... reveals a voice of intoxicating sweetness used with skill ... commands attention among illustrious peers.”

Sunday Herald Sun

“This disc is highly successful and eminently enjoyable to listen to ... This disc is a must for all music lovers.”

The Lieder Society of Victoria

“The star of this CD is the singer himself. Heuzenroeder has a fine lyric tenor voice which makes these songs sound deceptively straightforward, navigating the higher end of the tenor range with no signs of strain. It is this masterly technique which allows him to put everything into the interpretation of the songs which come alive ... strongly recommended”
