BBC Music Magazine

March 2008


“Schuricht was a great conductor, but one almost always forgets it. Why? These performances of Brahms and Reger lack idiosyncrasy yet are tremendous. Boult is a similar case, giving Beethoven's Grosse Fuge a towering reading.”

Gramophone Magazine

September 2007

“The resuscitation of Schuricht's reputation goes on apace here…. With the LSO on its best form of the time, the Brahms Tragic Overture if given a superb performance, properly lying between the lyrical and dramatic. Schuricht was taught by Reger, and obviously loves the Hiller work. He teases out all the delicacies in the scoring while maintaining a firm grip on their rather diffuse structure.”
