What people are saying

" How the Philharmonia strings manage to sustain intensity in a mere thread of sound through those halting, valedictory final bars is something to marvel at." BBC Music Magazine, October 2015

"The stars of this performance are the choruses, who always sound crisp, clear and utterly engaged; they’re also wonderfully intense when it matters…there’s a rare sense of total connection here, of a profound musical experience gratefully shared. I was gripped to the very end." MusicWeb International, January 2016

" …Maazel could sustain this score in a way that seemed to transcend reality…a tremendously moving experience." Classical Source, February 2016

"An extraordinary reading of the Ninth…a performance touched by greatness." – MusicWeb International, June 2016
