Raymond Tuttle
Fanfare, November 2016

…excellent performances. Livre is dramatic music, but I don’t think the composer intended for it to sound hectic or harsh. Liebreich and the orchestra wrap a layer of velvet around the hammer. …Musique funèbre is a dark work, of course, but the richness of its string writing draws the listener in. The Katowice strings, who are no stranger to this music, play it with assurance, and Liebreich’s conducting realizes the music’s multiple shades of gray. © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review

Pizzicato, October 2016

The ever excellent Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra is passionately responding to Alexander Liebreich’s inspired conducting in this appealing All-Polish program. © 2016 Pizzicato

American Record Guide, July 2016

This new recording is the best yet for me. It simply feels right: tempo, structure, pacing, color, sound—everything. It flows unerringly, is spot on in structure, and draws the right spirit from the variations without being heavy or brittle. The orchestra sounds like it was born to play this piece, and the sound is excellent, as it must be. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide
