"The command and clarity mezzo-soprano Malena Ernman brings to the Bolcom group is quite remarkable when you consider that English is not (her) mother tongue. In fact, she sings clearer English than many American vocalists I’ve heard attempt these gems ... the relatively modest musical and dramatic dimensions of the four Holländer songs inspire the disc’s peppiest, most characterful and most emotionally engaged interpretations."
- ClassicsToday.com

"Editor's Choice ... Malena Ernman grabs the listener’s attention in her debut album‚ make no mistake. She plunges into the deep end by beginning with William Bolcom’s ultra­sophisticated cabaret songs that indicate at once the breadth of style and diversity of timbre ... the Weill songs‚ sung in less than convincing French‚ are charming; Ernman’s quiet singing with the creamy top floating through the phrases brings special delight. Best of all in this respect is the entertaining Holländer group ..."
- Gramophone

"... she seems to me an absolutely super singer and if the repertoire appeals ... maybe even if it doesn’t, you should go out and get this. The Bolcom songs will probably be viewed one day as 20th century classics and the Weill have all his timeless bittersweet qualities ... the pianist is so good I hardly noticed him (I intend this as a compliment). At first the recording seemed to have the voice a little backward compared with the piano, but I came to appreciate it as a true concert hall balance."
- MusicWeb International

International superstar Malena Ernman made a great impact on the music world with this highly acclaimed debut album, released in October 2001. Beautifully accompanied by pianist Bengt-Åke Lundin, the Swedish mezzo-soprano sings English, French and German repertoire by Bolcom, Britten, Holländer and Weill.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
