Notes & Reviews:

International Record Review
The orchestral playing is outstanding - even by VPO standards...With Genia Kühmeier and, particularly, a gloriously dramatic Thomas Hampson standing out as about the two most admirable soloists I've heard in the work for many a long year, this has to be an essential recording for anyone who relishes richly romantic music-making at its best.

Gramophone Magazine
The performance is both beautifully shaped (especially from the woodwinds) and devotional in spirit. The closing 'Selig sind die Toten' presents a warming richness of texture, the underlying rhythmic pulse admirably clear, while the sombre processional of 'Denn alles Fleisch' builds well.
