Stephen D Chakwin Jr
American Record Guide, March 2016

All of Davis’s strengths are here. He understands the fragility and fear behind the tenor songs, the loneliness and yearning for connection, and the deep strength and true heroism of the alto songs. He captures the brittleness of the tenor songs (death) and the lush resilience of the alto songs (life) superbly.

Vickers and Norman were giants. Their intensity and vocal power are thrilling, and Davis responded with starkly splendid playing from the LSO.

There are lots of very good performances of Das Lied on records. This can stand among the best of them.

…this is a performance worth hearing. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Remy Franck
Pizzicato, November 2015

Colin Davis gives an almost theatrical rhetoric to the Lied von der Erde, and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra follows his conducting with fine colour and dynamic changes that make this performance a really great musical experience. The singers are excellent too, and so this is a very rewarding video document. © 2015 Pizzicato
