The Times

“Only when fighting, even when losing, does life bring joy”: such lines bring a gulp to the throat in this programme of music from Jewish composers banned or gassed by the Nazis. Sheridan’s soprano doesn’t do voluptuousness, nor crisp German enunciation, but she has heart and passion, which warms the more testing selections by Ullmann and Schulhoff. Pavel Haas’s Seven Folk Songs are the best discovery.
