Notes & Reviews:
The Guardian, 4th July 2013
It's superbly done. Zinman's speeds are on the relaxed side, but there's wonderful transparency in the playing, far removed from the thick textures favoured by some interpreters. A thrilling account of Siegfried's Rhine Journey is the high point.
BBC Music Magazine, October 2013
The poetic grandeur David Zinman brings to his acclaimed Mahler is equally evident here, with tempos slow enough to please Klemperer.
International Record Review, September 2013
[Silins] has a powerful voice that has a colour and tone that are absolutely right for Wagner...[he] sings Wotan's Farewell from Die Walkure with great presence and steely resolve where it's called for, but he is not afraid to produce real tenderness in places.
Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013
All Zinman's success in the German repertoire from Beethoven to Strauss breeds period-conscious, exciting Wagner from him and his players, never over-bloated to a later-in-the-century sound.
