'A rare opportunity to sample Chopin the song composer, here performed with real feeling by Polish mezzo Urszula Kryger.'(Gramophone)

Rosette Recording - Penguin Stereo Guide

'A rare opportunity to sample Chopin the song composer, here performed with real feeling by Polish mezzo Urszula Kryger. The dark core of melancholy in Kryger's voice is fine-tunes to the Slavic melodic contours of a song like The Sad Stream. And her instinctive grasp of both musical and verbal inflection makes for a beautifully understated performance of Melodya, Chopin's last, heartfelt song of exile'
(Gramophone)

'There's no excuse not to encounter a master miniaturist painting on less familiar canvesses'
(BBC Music Magazine)
