Notes & Reviews:

Following up their two critically acclaimed recordings of orchestral music by Richard Strauss, conductor Christian Thielemann and the Vienna Philharmonic turn their attention to a survey of the German Romantic overtures. Thielemann leads his refined and precise players in stylish readings, the recording is bright and focused. - Classic FM (London) Mixed collections of overtures have become quite a rarity on new CDs and there is much to admire in this one from Christian Thielemann Throughout the disc, the playing of the Vienna Philharmonic, recorded in the Musikverein, is a delight - Gramophone The playing of the Vienna Philharmonic is consistently glorious, with perfect wind chording and wonderfully articulated string playing in Mendelssohns Midsummer Nights Dream, a luminous horn solo to begin Webers Oberon, and implacable brass to launch Rienzi. - The Guardian (London)
