Paul Ballyk
Expedition Audio, April 2015

…a fascinating portrait of the composer, expertly performed by the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz under the direction of Karl-Heinz Steffens… © 2015 Expedition Audio Read complete review

Julian Haylock
International Record Review, March 2015

…a beguiling programme of Dallapiccola scores. Bewitchingly played and engineered, these highly atmospheric performances offer an ideal entry point into the Italian’s rarefied soundworlds. © 2015 International Record Review

James H. North
Fanfare, March 2015

ZIMMERMANN, B.A.: Alagoana / Sinfonie in einem Satz / Photoptosis / Stille und Umkehr (Rheinland-Pfalz State Philharmonic, Steffens) C5213
DALLAPICCOLA, L.: Orchestral Music (Rheinland-Pfalz State Philharmonic, Steffens) C5214

For recordings of such rarely heard works, one would hope for subtle, fully thought-through interpretations, top-quality performances with razor-sharp technique, and drop-dead recorded sound. These discs come close to those expectations. The performances are good…highly recommended. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

BBC Music Magazine, December 2014

An enjoyable orchestral survey of Dallapiccola’s sun-drenched modernism spanning four decades, with lovely delicate playing, especially in the first of the Due Pezzi. © 2014 BBC Music Magazine
