R E V I E W S

“Stanislaw Skrowaczewski elicits remarkable ensemble qualities from the Saarbrücken Radio Symphony – both in the sharply drawn tutti and the subtle colours of the single instrumental groups.“ -- Rondo, June 2000

“The conductor (Skrowaczewski) lets the music breathe and still maintains a remarkable intensity in structuring the principal and secondary parts.” -- FONO FORUM, August 1996
