“...these are sterling accounts, with just the right mix of tenderness and sorrow in Nänie and a real tragic forward motion to the central section of the Schicksaslied...aided by the passionately committed singing of the choir. In the Alto Rhapsody Alice Coote is an eloquent and thoughtful soloist”
“These are animated, purposeful performances...The movement is free, quite unclogged; the texture is clear, no thickening substance adhering.”

“the Middle European Bamberg sound and the Munich-based choristers sound absolutely at home in this repertoire — there is an old-world Brahmsian glow to the singing and playing... Anyone who wants these works on one disc won’t be disappointed.”

“Ticciati's performances are wonderfully alive and dramatically sensitive...while the Bamberg orchestra and the Bavarian Radio Choir have this music in their bones.”

“[Ticciati's] ear for style, detail and musical shape is judicious and his mode of expression sound.This is mellow Brahms...The Bavarian forces perform the music with a soft, radiant glow.”
