Pizzicato, September 2015

Comprising the Memorial Concert for Claudio Abbado in Lucerne as well as interviews with orchestra musicians and the stunning homage from the Milanese audience at La Scala in Milan, this film is one magically precious, magically enriching and truly unique document. © 2015 Pizzicato

Audiophile Audition, March 2015

I have mixed emotions about this disc. It is emotional, and a fine tribute to Abbado.

The music itself is superb. I especially enjoyed Berg’s Violin Concerto with soloist Isabelle Faust…The musicianship throughout the concert is of very high caliber, and the recorded sound is excellent. The strings are very smooth, and percussion is sharply defined.

The best moments on the disc are the adagio from the Mahler Third Symphony. A favorite of Abbado, it’s wonderfully played under conductor Andris Nelsons. © 2015 Audiophile Audition Read complete review
