Reviewed May 2017

The long wait for Jamie Barton’s debut recital disc was worth every minute. Barton, double winner of 2013’s BBC Cardiff Singer of the World, is wonderfully idiomatic in Dvořák and Sibelius, and she and her pianist give a performance of Mahler’s Rückert Lieder that is up there with the greatest.

Audio clip: 'Var det en dröm' (Was it a dream) from Sibelius's 5 Songs, Op. 37 No. 4 and 'Liebst du um Schönheit' from Mahler's Rückert Lieder
