…the singers—soloists and the chorus—are very good. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Robert Levine
Stereophile, March 2016

…while the entire symphony is masterful, and the way it builds thematically to its final movement is not only admirable and audible but an object lesson in superb compositional style, in fine performances it always surprises and exhilarates.

Soloists are fine, and the chorus is brilliant. In all, this is a crucial performance, one that tells all about the Ninth. © 2016 Stereophile

MusicWeb International, November 2015

Much is made of the acoustics of the Suntory Hall in Tokyo, but to make a lovely sound you still have to push the air around in the best possible way, and Jansons has his Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks pushing in all the right directions. Intonation is almost invariably good, and the balance between strings, winds, brass and percussion is beautifully integrated. © 2015 MusicWeb International Read complete review
