Michelle DeYoung Reviews:
“Ms. DeYoung is a powerful singer with a warm, seductive tone…” The New York Times
“the true find here is Michelle DeYoung, who sings with a warmth and communication reminiscent of Christa Ludwig. This is a wonderful set, performed with intelligence and feeling, and it should rise to the top of any list of superb Das Lieds.” —Robert Levine
