Notes & Reviews:

This CD marks the beginning of a new recording cycle of the complete symphonic poems of Richard Strauss as performed by the SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg and their principal conductor, Francois-Xavier Roth.

BBC Music Magazine, October 2013
The combination of his muscly, forward-moving approach, with not an ounce of fat on it, and perhaps most stunning engineering accorded to the master orchestrator yet, mean that both the mock-epic composer hero of Ein Heldenleben and the dying man of Tod und Verklärung make their momentous journeys without sag or stress...these performances pulse with ideal life.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013
What I particularly like about this performance is its musical honesty...Roth draws extremely fine playing from his orchestra.
