CD Reviews

A Voice to Bring Peace to the World
DaveBo | San Francisco, California | 01/05/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a parent of a new baby and a classical music afficionado, I was delighted to find When Night Falls; it is now a favorite of my daughter and myself. Kirschlager's phrasing is nothing short of phenomenal, making even the simple Brahm's lullaby (#3 on the CD) more compelling and emotional. Her warm tones are especially complimented where the viola and cello are present (try #s 4 and 5). Can German lyrics be light and lilting? Yes, when Kirchschlager sings them. This CD is a great way to expose your baby to classical music, AND get him/her off to dreamland."
Voice of an Angel
William Thacker | Notting Hill, London | 05/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was first introduced to Ms. Kirchlager three years ago and was instantly impressed. Her sumptuous voice and incredible beauty make her a delight to listen to, time and time again. When Night Falls, is only the most recent of what promises to be a long and impressionable career. From the ever popular "Edelweiss" to the easily recognizable "Wiegenlied", Ms. Kirchschlager approaches each song with the same heart-felt emotion as if she were singing to her own child. I have often listened to her CD late at night to help myself fall into my own sweet dreamland of "The Little Horses"."
Lullabies for Young and Old
Giselle E. Whitwell | Austin, TX | 03/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This recording of lullabies stands out because of the exquisite musical sensibility it brings to each song. Angelika Kirschschlager's voice is so transparent and pure, so expressive, it delights both children and adults. The diverse instrumentation adds variety to the otherwise well known repertoire, even if the balance is not always a happy one as for example the Brahms "Gestillte Sehnsucht". The artist has succeeded in presenting the well known form of "lullabies" to a wider audience through her high artistic vision and execution."
