"All of the arrangements are quite effective in capturing the spirit and musical impact of these immortal Schubert songs. And Ethan Lorentz’s renditions are impressive in every respect. Lorentz plays in a manner that does full justice to the arrangements’ realization of the original voice and piano writing. In his assumption of the singer’s role, Lorentz plays with an unfailingly beautiful tone, seamless legato, scrupulous and flexible phrasing, and an impressive range of dynamics and colors. It is clear that both in the creation and performance of these arrangements, Lorentz immersed himself fully in the music and narrative of Schubert’s creations. And it is all captured in first-rate sound, via recordings made in Grusin Hall at the University of Colorado Boulder. A marvelous recital. Five stars: Marvelous arrangements and performances of Schubert lieder by guitarist Ethan Lorentz" -Ken Meltzer  for Fanfare Magazine 

"Schubert Lieder on Guitar by Ethan Lorentz is filled with thoughtful and expressive performances and a historically interesting arranging process. The beautiful music of Schubert is presented with a clear melodic focus and careful balance of the texture. Between Mertz and Lorentz’s own arrangements, we have a newly expanded collection of lieder to enjoy." - This is Classical Guitar
