“…the young tenor is wonderfully impassioned…
Mow and Malson go from strength to strength. Paul Mow is a greatly gifted young singer with a bright future, and this wonderful performance should make many converts to Brahms neglected cycle”
Lawrence A. Johnson
The Gramophon, October, 2007

A rarely performed masterpiece by Brahms; this song cycle is based on novelist and dramatist Ludwig Tieck's 'Wondrous Love Story of the Beautiful Magelone and Peter, the Count of Provence'. The American tenor Paul Mow gives a strong performance of these 15 exquisitely beautiful, tender, and powerful songs. Together with the extraordinary playing of pianist Eric Malson, recorded in the acoustic perfection of New York City's Town Hall by producer John Ostendorf, this is Brahms Lieder at its finest. Full texts and translations included. Produced in association with Multicultural Media.
