James H. North
Fanfare, January 2017

The performances and recorded sound are marvelous. I put this disc on thinking: “A very valuable record for representing Ginastera’s little-known Third Period,” and came away thinking how wonderful most of it was. © 2017 Fanfare Read complete review

Andrew Farach-Colton
Gramophone, October 2016

…the overall mood is gravely ceremonial, with a hint of tragic grandeur in the opening fanfare. The Louisville recording was good but this is both better played and better recorded. The Concerto and Glosses are also extremely well done. Arturo Tamayo elicits committed, colourful playing from the DSO Berlin and the engineering is first‑rate. © 2016 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

Andrew Clements
The Guardian, August 2016

Jubilum…maintains the high levels of dissonance but combines them with music that is much more obviously celebratory. Like all the pieces here, it uses a huge orchestra with virtuoso brilliance; Arturo Tamayo’s performance with the Berlin Deutsches Symphonie captures every bit of that brilliance, and they make sure they extract all the dramatic power out of the other pieces in this very useful collection too. © 2016 The Guardian Read complete review
