Gramophone Magazine

September 2012

“It's a well-played ensemble performance under a wise old stage-director (Harry Kupfer)...Frankfurt's cast has plenty of gutsy ecclesiastical characters in the Council scene...Koch is a worthy Borromeo and the whole is a triumph for British tenor Peter Bronder in the title-role.”

The Guardian

19th April 2012


“The cast is decent, if not spectacular. Peter Bronder is reliable in the title role, and Wolfgang Koch is a slightly stolid Borromoeo”
