BBC Music Magazine

October 2011

****

“Christian Franz, though by no means ideal, has many of the qualities the role needs, including a pleasant voice and staying power...He also shows a sense of poetry, so that he doesn't come across as a bullying adolescent boy scout...But the outstanding member of the cast is Peter Galliard as Mime...So often played as a caricature, here even the extremes of demented anxiety remain musical...Young's conducting...is first-rate”

Gramophone Magazine

Awards Issue 2011

“Young's new Siegfried favours chamber-like clarity and colour over brute strength and decibels...[Franz] is attentive to opportunities for quiet singing and textual colour...[Foster is] a spirited, imaginative interpreter, challenged but never overcome by the high tessitura...[Struckmann delivers] a sung-through (as opposed to declaimed) Wotan of Lieder-like detail and care, his finest performance of the role yet recorded.”

International Record Review

September 2011

“in this Siegfried we get such textural clarity that each duet - and this opera is, in essence, a series of duets - is a 20-or-so-minute mini-drama, some amusing, some vicious, some loving. Young captures each situation perfectly...This is one of the most exquisitely led and orchestrally balanced readings, with a terrific, vivid Wotan, great story-telling, forward propulsion, no eccentricities and a fine supporting cast.”
