Notes & Reviews:

Several of the recordings on this exciting program have never been released on CD!

BBC Music Magazine
Adroit advocacy for new music on Disc 1 coupled with performances of 19th-century works that are so elaborately inflected and hyper-glamorous as to leave the German orchestra in near disarray.
