Notes & Reviews:

"...Zemlinsky's sumptuous scoring...needs, in short, an orchestra of the Royal Concertgebouw's stature, and in this reading they sound quite magnificent...Chailly is the real star of the performance, pacing the opera so well that it seems over in no time, drawing richly complex but never muddy textures from his remarkable orchestra...my first thought on hearing the Alma Mahler songs was that what they have been needing all these years is orchestration..." -MEO, Gramophone
