…this is a brilliant recording and performance. I would certainly commend it.

…this Capriccio set, at bargain price, would be a good version by which to get to know this opera. © 2014 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Fanfare, January 2014

Schreker’s Der ferne Klang deserves a much wider audience than it has so far reached, especially in the English-speaking world, so this reissue of a fine 1990 recording from Capriccio is welcome indeed.

Conductor Gerd Albrecht takes a disciplined approach to the score, while still allowing the more expansive textures plenty of space. Thomas Moser is certainly up to the challenges posed by the lead role of Fritz, and as well as accuracy and projection he also gives a distinctive and highly emotive performance. The recorded sound is good.

This Albrecht version is the pick of the budget releases…this release is strongly recommended. © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review

Thomas Moser is an excellent Fritz…Roland Herrmann makes a star vehicle of the Count’s song, and the many minor characters carry out their roles well. © 2014 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide
