„eine Hindemith-CD, die allein schon wegen der Werkauswahl Aufmerksamkeit verdient ... sehr gelungene Aufnahme.” (WDR)

”Hearing these rare early vocal works provides another link in understanding Hindemith’s development as a composer. ... The recordings are excellent and the two earliest pieces may even be recorded premieres.” (Fanfare)
