Notes & Reviews:

International Record Review
Attention to contour and proportion, clarity of texture and the beautifully balanced and blended sonorities characteristic of Luisi's work with other orchestras are evident throughout this performance of Schumann's D minor Symphony.

Gramophone Magazine
The Brahms has a real sense of occasion, with Arabella Steinbacher projecting the music's different phrases in a compelling way, and a rich orchestral backing that's especially notable for the strength and significance given to Brahms's important bass-lines.

Classic FM Magazine
Hearing her Brahms performance - it was recorded live in Vienna - is rather like reading a great 19th-century novel that whirls between extremes of unfailing eloquence and lets us experience them all...Luisi and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra give the Schumann symphony a centred and vigorous performance, creating a particularly fine, mystical atmosphere during the transition into the last movement.

BBC Music Magazine
[The Brahms] is impressive, offering a relatively straightforward and unmannered interpretation. Steinbacher possess as beautifully warm, burnished tone and performs almost flawlessly throughout. The first movement is spacious but never indulgent, securing an almost ideal balance between the Classical and Romantic aspects of the work. Luisi extracts a wealth of interesting detail from the accompaniment and the sound has great immediacy.
