George Chien
Fanfare, July 2013

The Gloria Patri…is done at break-neck speed and then some…it’s sung with remarkable precision and gusto by the Bavarian Radio Choir. And it’s not all flash; the duet in the penultimate movement is especially touching, with Christina Landshamer’s soprano soaring ethereally over Diana Haller’s lovely mezzo.

…maestro Dijkstra draws a vital performance from his talented forces [in the Magnificat]. The choir…is splendid throughout, as is their instrumental counterpart, Concerto Köln. Overall, this is a deeply satisfying release. © 2013 Fanfare Read complete review

American Record Guide, May 2013

There is the feeling of youth about these two performances. Dijkstra is obviously a very able director who has an energetic, bracing sense of the music. The soloists…fulfill their assignments quite comfortably. The orchestra is a noteworthy period-instrument ensemble that pitches in earnestly. Above all, it is the chorus that has impressed me…they are well disciplined but also full of a lusty enthusiasm that makes me wish I could have been singing among them for the sheer joy of it.

…this release is certainly a satisfying investment. I really enjoyed it. © 2013 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide
