Gramophone Magazine

December 2011

“The Frankfurt performance has great depth and resonance. This is another faultlessly cast production with some outstanding singing from the lyric tenor Klaus Florian Vogt and the dramatic soprano Hedwig Fassbender. Their vivid word-painting and turn of phrase rivets the attention, with the orchestra led by Sebastian Weigle throwing themselves heart and soul into Korngold's score.”

MusicWeb International

December 2012

“For Klaus Florian Vogt’s achievement alone this set is worth acquiring, whatever the merits of the rest of the cast. Those merits are considerable...Tatiana Pavlovskaya, after a somewhat shaky start, is superb...The playing is fresh and colourful, tempos are well chosen and the balance, often so problematic in live recordings, is everything one could wish.”
