Presto Recordings Of The Year

"A willingness to take risks…has always been integral to [Clayton's] singing, and the dividends are often enormous…There are also wonderful moments of lyrical reflection, though, and the way he sings 'Du bist wie eine Blume' with a poised mezza voce is breathtaking. Drake, meanwhile, invests every phrase with weight and meaning, and is, as ever, outstanding. Another fine disc in an exceptional series." - Gramophone
