Reviews

As before, one of this latest discís greatest assets is the outstanding quality of the recorded sound. Airy and incredibly detailed, analytical but never clinical, transparent but not short of weight: it means that even Straussís most congested passages come across with astonishing clarity. ... Rothís conducting [in Symphonia domestica] is on the swift side, and some might feel he rushes on a couple of occasions. But itís irresistibly full of energy and life: the sheer hustle and bustle and invention of the music is conveyed beautifully.  Hugo Shirley
