Actually I like my Songs best... musical ideas have prepared themselves in me - God knows why, and when, as it were, the barrel is full, a song appears in the twinkling of an eye. Richard Strauss..

"Simone Young's ability to shape a phrase is remarkable, and something she has come to by the time-honoured European route of Kapellmeister, working with singers as repetiteur, accompanist, co-artist. This contact with singers' phrasing is what she and other great conductors bring to a performance. Simone's other great quality, well documented, is her ability to breathe life into a performance, to make the music sound as if it is being played for the first time." - Producer's note.

"She has an extraordinary gift." - Daniel Barenboim.

"This is a superlative disc ... Davislim is robust and luxurious ... This is one of the loveliest Strauss discs to come along in many years - and anyone who enjoys the composer's way with words and music shouldn't miss it. Performance: 4-1/2 stars Sound: 4 stars." - AllMusic Guide (USA) (August 2007).
