Infodad.com, November 2015

…it shows genuine originality in others, and is well-orchestrated and effectively written for both individual and choral voices. Frank Beermann leads the forces heard on a new Capriccio CD firmly and with a particularly good sense of balance between the vocal and instrumental elements of the score. © 2015 Infodad.com Read complete review



Dominy Clements
MusicWeb International, November 2015

This live recording is pretty good… The performance is passionate and the solo voices tend to crowd out the orchestra here and there but in general the balance is effective in delivering the moods and wide contrasts in this remarkable piece. © 2015 MusicWeb International Read complete review




Steven A. Kennedy
Cinemusical, November 2015

This is truly one of the great discovered choral and orchestral masterpieces of the 20th century. It is a brilliant work! © 2015 Cinemusical Read complete review
