New CD release from Sibelius One:

Hedvig Paulig, soprano
(winner of the 2011 International Sibelius Singing Competition)
Folke Gräsbeck, piano

‘The soprano Hedvig Paulig… is blessed with all that a singer desires: a voice full of beauty, precise intuition, a technique that seemingly easily takes her to clear high tones without as much as a blink as well as to the low tones, in which her voice turns full and warm. Paulig is also a real actress who expresses emotions in her songs from humor to mystic and grief. Her whole performance is full of charm…’ (Noam Ben Zeev for Haaretz Newspaper, May 2015)

‘The advocacy of Folke Gräsbeck [in Sibelius’s solo piano music] outstrips that of almost all earlier exponents.’ (Richard Whitehouse, International Record Review, May 2011)

Den första kyssen [The First Kiss], Op. 37 No. 1
