All Music Guide - James Leonard
Of all the lieder at which Elisabeth Schwarzkopf excelled -- Schubert's, Schumann's, even Mozart's -- perhaps more than any other, she excelled at Wolf's lieder. Her tone, her technique but most of all her understanding of the dramatic potential of every song makes her performances models of Wolf singing. In this lavishly filled two disc set drawn from six LPs recorded between 1956 and 1965, EMI has in effect given sopranos and other singers a master class in Wolf.

Of all the lieder at which Elisabeth Schwarzkopf excelled -- Schubert's, Schumann's, even Mozart's -- perhaps more than any other, she excelled at Wolf's lieder. Her tone, her technique but most of all her understanding of the dramatic potential of every song makes her performances models of Wolf singing.

Part of the appeal here is the superb piano playing of Gerald Moore who is as much a partner as an accompanist; part of the appeal is the superlative production of Walter Legge who is as much a collaborator as a sound engineer. But most of the appeal is Schwarzkopf's way with Wolf. Her gleamingly burnished tone makes the most of his melodies; her elegant technique makes the most of his phrasing; but -- with the aid of Moore and especially Legge -- it is her supremely studied but wholly sympathetic interpretations that makes her performances unsurpassed as emotional experience. Listen to any song here from the Mignon Lieder that opens the first disc through the Mörike Lieder that opens and the songs from the Italian Song Book that fill out the second disc: Schwarzkopf's interpretations seems to comprehend the full meaning of the composer's incomparable fusion of text and music. For anyone who loves lieder singing in general and Wolf singing in particular, this set will be indispensable.
