John Quinn
MusicWeb International, February 2012

this DVD contains two very good performances led by a master conductor. Invest in it and see an economical and thoroughly musical maestro direct deeply considered performances that are the fruit of a lifetime’s experience. Kurt Sanderling is one of those conductors of whom it could be truly said ‘they don’t make ’em like that anymore’—more’s the pity! © 2012 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Ken Smith
Gramophone, January 2012

Sanderling is blessed with singers highly compatible with his interpretation. The versatile tenor John Mitchinson soars comfortably even in the piece’s highest registers, and mezzosoprano Carolyn Watkinson…brings to Mahler a comparable sense of musical and emotional transparency, particularly in the concluding ‘Abschied’. © 2012 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

Robert Benson, December 2011

This performance of Das Lied is among the best. As with the Previn DVD, video is adequate, with “ambient remastering” that conveys the performance. © 2011 Read complete review
