Fanfare, November 2014

[Simone Young’s]…readings are filled with passion and vibrancy, yet with all the thoughtfulness and stylishness one could wish for. The Hamburg Philharmonic gives Young playing that is highly distinctive in its Central European sound, a real throwback to the orchestral tone from German recordings… © 2014 Fanfare

Simone Young’s Brahms is striking, lovingly played by the composer’s hometown orchestra, and deeply satisfying in its artistic aesthetic. © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review

MusicWeb International, October 2013

I enjoyed these performances very much. The Philharmoniker Hamburg is on consistently fine form and the playing is reported in very good sound… these Hamburg performances can…hold their heads up high in a competitive field. No one investing in this disc will be disappointed; it makes for rewarding listening and the performances make one think again about these great symphonies. © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review
