Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, October 2012
Sophie Junker is a personable Diana to tenor Makoto Sakurada's youthfully lyrical Endymion. Best of all if baritone Roderick Williams's Pan who renders the outrageous toadying distinctly palatable. Suzuki shapes everything with his trademark light touch, if he's sometimes inclined to under-characterise the drama.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2012
Brilliantly caught, from the casting of the four characters to the expectional continuo work, led by Suzuki himself. Makoto Sakurada (as Endymion) conveys the ensnaring potential of love with friendly caution, while Pan (the ever-communicative Roderick Williams) delivers the first feel-good excursion in celebrating our Prince as Pan of his country.
