Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian, November 2012
Decently rather than outstandingly played, it's an odd assortment, which nevertheless fixes Braunfels' music within the spectrum of 20th-century German music rather well.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Braunfels's Concerto (1928) is impressive. In I, the combination of the organ's powerful lower register with timpani or bass drum sonorities gets pretty thick in every meaning of the word. Apkalna's sensitive dynamics and clean voicing do a lot to clear things up. II is more devotional, the solo role played against some graceful figurations in the strings. Generally, both the organ and orchestral parts are more transparent, building to a peak after which the choir sings the chorale 'Sei Gegruesst, Jungfrau'. Performances sound good, even the kiddies singing reasonably well.
