A disc I grabbed from storage and enjoyed listening to, Helene Lindqvist's singing is really stunning, especially moving since I was hearing it for the first time on my ESL57 speakers.

Berg’s lieder is excellent. This is the recording I have and it’s superb:

Dear HVBIAS and MI,

Alban Berg composed some 80 lieder in his youth after the loss of his father in the 1904-1908 period.  He had already started his composition studies with Schoenberg.  Out of these, he extracted seven of them "The Jugendlieder" that he orchestrated later on.  He forbade the performance of the other lieder during his lifetime.  A new recording (3CDs) of the integral of all Berg lieder has just been published, and for many of them, it is a world premiere.  The performance are good.  I can recommend this small box.
