David Patrick Stearns
Gramophone, August 2016


The sound is superb, the conductor knows the opera right down to the floor plan and Moses has an emotional range well beyond certainty and rage. © 2016 Gramophone

Steven Ritter
Audiophile Audition, December 2014

The first SACD recording of this seminal piece—and it’s a great one. © 2014 Audiophile Audition Read complete review

Arnold Whittall
Gramophone, September 2014

… the total ensemble is well defined and dramatically engaged throughout, with all the smaller vocal parts well taken. Sylvain Cambreling brings out the extraordinarily intense austerity of the dialogue scenes and ensures that the luridly pictorial aspects of the ‘Dance round the Golden Calf’ are never over-emphasised. This imposing, intriguing opera is one of the most powerful contributions to 20th-century musical modernism and this recording does it justice. © 2014 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

Alain Steffen
Pizzicato, July 2014

Sylvain Cambreling conducts a very transparent, wonderfully melodic and fluid performance of Schönberg’s Mosen und Aron’ and, thus, supports his excellent singers in the best possible way. The gorgeous orchestral playing and the terrific surround sound add more value to this set, so that it easily takes advantage over all other performances on disc. © 2014 Pizzicato
