BBC Music Magazine

May 2010

*****

“highly recommended, a refreshing antidote to leaden Teutonic representations. Wagner responds best to Romantic imagery, but this gives it a vividly original twist.”

Gramophone Magazine

June 2010

“…excellent orchestral playing and decent sound to match…a striking and often absorbing experiment”
