Dopo la vittoria

BBC Music Magazine

May 2014


“this is a performance that accumlates power and authority as it proceeds, and the blazing conviction they bring to the work's third and fourth movements - powerfully shaped by Peter Dijkstra - makes for a richly rewarding listening experience.”

MusicWeb International

“Dijkstra is a master of choral forces and his talented Bavarian radio choir perform persuasively and with compelling devotional intensity. Nothing seems unduly forced. The sacred text is vividly projected with the voices blending splendidly and with immaculate intonation...I count these wonderful performances as among the choir’s finest achievements to date.”
