Notes & Reviews:

Acclaimed as one of the best musicians of our day, conductor Christoph Eschenbach regularly conducts the major European and American orchestras, including the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonics, the leading orchestras of London and the symphony orchestras of Boston, Chicago, Cleveland and New York. Maestro Eschenbach currently holds several international positions: Music Director of the Orchestre de Paris, a post he assumed in 2000, and Music Director of the Philadelphia Orchestra since 2003.

Classics Today
Dietrich Henschel's performance is extraordinary, one of the most impressive vocal displays to come along in many a moon. ... Billed as "Luciano Berio: In Memoriam", this disc offers an ideal tribute to a major figure in 20th century music.

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Given the work's importance, it's a pity that it couldn't have been taken into the studio and worked on more intensively. Yet this Ondine release captures the emotional power of a special occasion, all five movements coloured by the brooding atmosphere established at the outset in Celan's great threnody.
