Classical Good CD Guide, January 1997

"The Naxos recording has a clarity, bloom, depth and truthfulness not often found even at the top of the price range....The musical performance seems just right ...allowing Mahler's masterpiece , played as well as it is here, to speak for itself...Donose, who is something of a find, sings her contribution with inherent beauty, her tone refulgent... All in all this is quite an amazing bargain."



Fanfare, April 1996

The National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland is first rate; the winds are especially lovely... Excellent well-balanced recording with great presence.



American Record Guide, June 1995

"the real surprise is the excellence of the Irish orchestra, which had never recorded Mahler before. Not only are the instrumentalists individually excellent, but as an orchestra they also capture the Mahler sound"



Gramophone

"Naxos have done it again. Let me begin with the recording. It has clarity, bloom, depth and truthfulness not often found even at the top of the price range, and is particularly notable for placing the singers in a prominent position, yet in exactly the right relationship with the orchestra. Above all it has presence. One cannot ask for more. The musical performance seems to me just right.... It is plain, unadorned, presenting the score, if that is possible, as it is, with little in the way of deliberate interpretation.... All in all this is an amazing bargain"
