Notes & Reviews:

On this disc Chandos bring together some of the highlights from Neeme Jarvi's five-volume Wagner series with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. As an added bonus, they included the Overture to Der fliegende Holländer, a piece not before released as part of their Wagner series.

Sunday Times, 1st September 2013
Jarvi's interpretations are wonderfully supple.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2013
An excellent programme in its own right, hard to better, even though, surprisingly, Jarvi in his long career has conducted little or no theatrical Wagner. He tends to favour measured tempos, but these are illuminated by the fine playing of the RNSO, gleaming richly in the spacious grandeur of SACD sound.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2013
Järvi is a master of this repertoire and he continually conjures splendid playing from his Scottish orchestra.
