“… this disc deserves a strong recommendation – certainly lovers of Vaughan Williams’s songs shouldn’t hesitate. The recorded sound is very present and lifelike. English texts are included but prove unnecessary thanks to Gilchrist’s crystal-clear enunciation.”

"... the arias are tuneful easy on the ear, and flow together well. Soprano Otto has a voice that matches the lines easily ... Her sense of pitch is excellent, and she blends well with the fine continuo playing by her group... These arias are all well done and should provide a fine hour's listening."

“…these are very fine performances of very attractive music; and while serious collectors are bound already to have multiple versions of these works – including the Grieg, which has been recorded a number of times – this new release can still be strongly recommended for a balance of superb playing and keen musical intelligence that find just the right mood and tone for each of these pieces.”

"... All three works featured on this album are brilliantly crafted and highly attractive. They should appeal to just about everyone ... Performances by James Feddeck and the Deutsches Symphony Orchestra Berlin are fantastic, and CPO's recording is even more vivid than usual."

“… I have nothing but praise for the performances. Anna Torge and Mayumi Hirasaki deliver truly speechlike interpretations, with a good articulation and effective dynamic shading. The fast movements are played with energy and aplomb. The ensemble is also excellent. One doesn't need to have a special liking of the mandolin to thoroughly enjoy this disc.”

Taken from a review of DK 6134 & DK 6135):

“… If you are new to the composer I would suggest starting with the second disc (DK 6135), on which all three works are rewarding. However, you will probably then want to hear the other part of the trilogy, possibly the most attractive of the three … Certainly the Papillons trilogy is well worth hearing.”
