Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine, February 2015
Impressive accounts ranging from elegant precision in Don Quixote (cellist Emmanuel Brabec a superb soloist) to an over-the-top but thrilling Death and Transfiguration.
Gramophone Magazine (Don Juan, Tod und Verklärung)
[Maazel secures from the] splendid symphony orchestra a considerable quantity of splendid sound.
Gramophone Magazine (Rosenkavalier Waltzes)
Served up with great gusto ... with the utmost in Viennese affetuoso rubato ... The orchestral playing has a superb gloss and is full of subtle shadings, and the dynamic range is very wide indeed.
Lorin Maazel gives a finely-paced account of Macbeth and draws sumptuous playing from the VPO ... it goes without saying that the playing of the VPO is altogether glorious.
