Notes and Editorial Reviews

From the GRAMOPHONE review of the original release
"...I was surprised how clear and musicianly the treatment of many of the work's notorious cruxes is. Van Dam grows into the role and Tomowa-Sintow is fresh-sounding and lyrical in her solo, superior by far to Barbara Hendricks on Karajan's 1983 DG re-make. Certainly this is a record that...should get on to any CD short-list..." - GRAMOPHONE
