"This CD is the most personal I have ever made.
Mahler's Kindertotenlieder have always been dear to my heart and I wanted to show how near the different composers are to each other while approaching the same subject from totally different angles. Death is always terrible and brutal, but at the same time releasing, comforting and even human. For me, by reducing these versions to chamber music, the songs obtain intimacy, which creates these very personal, fragile and moving moments." Barbara Höfling
