Charles Youmans, ed.
Notes from Thomas Hampson on The Cambridge Companion to Richard Strauss:
“Dr. Susan Youens’s chapter [‘”Actually, I like my songs best:” Strauss’s Lieder‘] is written with her typical brilliance. She explores, in detail and with refreshing perceptions, several songs that are very often not heard, a couple of which then found their way into my [2014 Deutsche Grammophon] recording.”
