Gramophone Magazine

December 2005

“The series was one of the last intelligent contributions to classical music by British television and, even by 1996, one suspects that only a musician of Rattle's stature and determination could have got it made… The line is unapologetically deterministic, the content confident enough to challenge: no room here for the second-rate or 'shamefully neglected'. The Tristan chord leads to the chromaticism of Elektra and inevitably to 12-tone music.”
