There is an ideal transparency of texture here. Goerne is perfect in Mahler's" innig" mode; Bonney is delightful in duet-for-one "Verlor'ne Müh"; and Winbergh's distinctively open, Scandinavian tone and dramatic flair make for a magnificent "Revelge" . . . wholly recomrnendable . . . [Chailly's] reduced forces ensure an ideal lucidity in Mahler's fantastically intricate textures . . . Bonney sings an irresistible "Wer hat dies Liedlein erdacht" . . . As ever, Goerne's singing is founded on a scrupulously produced legato line, heard to eloquent effect in his desolate "Tamboursg'sell" and the coda of "Der Schildwache Nachtlied", where he distils an unearthly remoteness unmatched in any other recording . . .
