Really, it's quiet beautiful. The pellucid lyricism of "O Trauenvolle," the opening Rilke song, is quite, quite beautiful. And as the gorgeous Rilke songs are followed by a glorious Goethe and a sarcastic Krauss song, five ironic Kafka songs, four ecstatic Gerard Manley Hopkins songs, an extraordinary Donne song (The Flea!), and a final set of nostalgic Emil Barth songs, one realizes that, really, all Krenek's songs are quite, quite beautiful…….James Leonard @ AllMusic
Full of the sensual sounds of global music, these lush, sexy songs continue your musical journey around the world: India, Argentina, France and Ireland. It's hot music perfect to keep your parties in a cool groove.
