Notes & Reviews:

Latham-Koenig's valedictory recordings in Strasbourg illuminate his brilliant ability to shape phrases and extract orchestral color-ideal for Strauss' vividly pictorial tone poems.

"The account of Don Juan cannot be faulted: ideally paced, with a bold contribution from the horns and strings which are virile and rich. The tension in Metamorphosen, although not low, is a little inconsistent but reaches an impressively passionate climax with good, full-bodied recording. The conductor also provides highly sympathetic accompaniments for his soloist, Joan Rodgers." -Gramophone Magazine

"Joan Rodgers's singing...has bags of personality and that's the main thing...Tone-poem and elegy both start well, but have their problematic interpretative moments...The central sweep, though, is clear and impressive, the Strasbourg strings remarkably fine." -BBC Music Magazine***

"Don Juan has been played and recorded so often that it might seem impossbile to conjure the music into sounding as fresh as the day it was written. Yet it happens here, with a conductor-and-orchestra team that delivers sweeping panache, needlepoint precision, and vividly characterised solo playing (superb horns!). In the brooding, autumnal Metamorphosen, the quality of the Strasbourg string-playing is if anything higher." -Classic FM Magazine*****
