Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, June 2014
[Nelsons] knows he can ask anything of his players...Nelsons attacks when necessary with full-throttle precipitation...the shadowlands are even more sustained, highlighting the restless lover's death wish...but Nelson's charisma always shines through.

MusicWeb International, 3rd June 2014
This Don Juan fairly bursts out of the starting blocks. The opening pages are hugely vital, the music driven on with impulsive swagger and white-hot energy...[Till Eulenspiegel] should be a riot of colour and incident and that's just what we get here. Once again the CBSO's playing is razor-sharp, except where opulence is required and then they deliver that instead.

International Record Review, June 2014
The treacherous start of Don Juan is securely handled ... the work benefits from Nelsons's long-term perspective and conviction ... The account of Also Sprach Zarathustra has comparible focus and cohesion.
