BBC
Meetings of jazz and classical musicians run the risk of pleasing no-one. Love Songs strikes a balance that should appeal to fans of either musician – and to neutrals too. […]

The Guardian
Mehldau’s seven-song sequence may mean more to devotees of classical lieder than to jazz fans, though Von Otter is a natural and unfussy performer and Mehldau’s humming trills, inquiring countermelodies and River Man-like melodic turns will seem very familiar. […]

PopMatters
The first CD has wonderful things happening inside of it, for sure, but there are performance quirks that stand in the way of many an average listener excavating all that it has to offer. […]
