Bruce Surtees
The WholeNote, March 2016

Davis was such a natural, intuitive Mahlerian in this performance… Of course he has the redoubtable Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, …who are surely at home in this work. …Riegel creates a bright, constantly dramatic tone, cutting through the orchestral welter.

Soffel is captured in a role for which she was clearly born. In this production her alto voice is perfect for the role. She comes into her own after the orchestral interlude in Der Abschied where she projects a sense of loneliness and emptiness with the tone of her voice wherein she keeps any warmth under strict control, to crushing effect. © 2016 The WholeNote Read complete review

Robert Benson, November 2015

This is a grand, sensitive performance of Mahler’s masterpiece with superb soloists, …a fine addition to the DVD Mahler catalog. © 2015 Read complete review
