Gramophone Magazine

February 2013

“Stenz outdoes himself in finding a level of musical depth rarely plumbed in this piece. So too is he blessed with a roster of singers who view the music as more than merely a series of dramatic effects. Combing operatic firepower with the interpretative acumen of recitalists, the cast uniformly docuses not so much on hitting the dramatic points as floating the moments in between.”

The Arts Desk

8th December 2012

“Stenz excels at knitting together the disparate elements – the Veni, creator spiritus really feels like a component part of Mahler’s grand design instead of a clumsy prologue. The Gürzenich-Orchester make a burnished, very European sound. The brass play with incredible force and power, but never sound strident.”
