All the soloists are fine performers… Special high marks to clarinetist Richard Hawkins for his remarkable palette of both sound and style. This is an excellent addition to any library. © 2018 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

…this performance of [Metamorphosen] by Jochum and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra achieves an eloquence made all the more moving by its understatement.

Jochum’s [Metamophosen] is a dignified reading of great refinement. He elicits great power and intensity in the climaxes.
