Ach, des Knaben Augen / Ah, the boy's eyes

A selection of songs that probe the mind and spirit, Ach des Knaben Augen (Ah the boy's eyes) is a musical window to the soul.  The recording begins with four of the the remarkably sensitive and intense settings of Hugo Wolf's spiritual songs, proceeding to the Four Serious Songs of Johannes Brahms written in 1896, the year prior to his death, and finishes with that important transition into the modern era, Gustav Mahler's Kindertotenlieder.
