Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine, March 2013
The night opening is evocatively veiled, the mountain theme especially, and moves organically to its spiritual sunrise. Throughout there's a natural sense of pace between vigorous clambering and spacious nature panoramas. Shipway moulds his strings to sit every situation...I'd be very happy to hear more Strauss from this remarkable team.
Gramophone Magazine, January 2013
A dramatic case of fire and ice if ever there was one...You might argue that nobility has to some extent been sacrificed to the brazenness of the playing but you cannot deny the fervour of what they bring. I don't know of a more exciting account on disc.
