Paul Corfield Godfrey
MusicWeb International, August 2015

WEILL, K.: Edition, Vol. 1 (Latham-König) (5-CD Box Set) C7178
WEILL, K.: Recordings (Complete), Vol. 2 C7184

…the performances and recordings are excellent, with Jan Latham-König—who directs the majority of the readings—clearly totally in sympathy with Weill’s style and idiom. © 2015 MusicWeb International Read complete review

WEILL, K.: Edition, Vol. 1 (Latham-König) (5-CD Box Set) C7178
WEILL, K.: Recordings (Complete), Vol. 2 C7184

There is much to admire in the performances that Latham-König brings to these recordings. The advance over those old Columbia vinyls from the Fifties that featured Weill’s widow Lotte Lenya as soloist and William Bruckner-Ruggberg is prodigiously impressive. Finally, one gets to hear some of Weill’s finest songs performed with a secure sense of pitch!

…Capriccio has created a valuable resource that excellently covers the development of Weill’s style as a composer before his departure from Germany. © 2015 Examiner.com Read complete review
