James H. North
Fanfare, November 2016

Composer/arranger Richard Dünser has given us a magnificent new Second-Vienna-School symphony, a worthy cousin of Pelleas und Melisande and Die Seejungfrau. © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review

American Record Guide, July 2016

Mezzo Jenny Carlstedt makes a solid case for the music, singing with beauty of tone and a clear sympathy with the words. She movingly expresses varied emotional states. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Opera News, June 2016

Dünser’s sensitive job of orchestrating these pieces commands respect, as does the playing of the Lapland Chamber Orchestra and the conducting of John Storgårds. And perhaps the Chamber Symphony is more effective in this form than as a string quartet. © 2016 Opera News Read complete review

MusicWeb International, March 2016

In both works, the Lapland Chamber Orchestra play with great commitment and considerable virtuosity. The Quartet/Symphony in particular is a ferociously demanding score and the players give their considerable best. © 2016 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Midwest Tape, February 2016

Ondine is proud to release these world premiere recordings of two new Zemlinsky arrangements by Richard Dünser with Lapland Chamber Orchestra conducted by John Storgårds. He wrote only 27 works with an opus number, but several of them can be considered among 20th century masterpieces. © 2016 Midwest Tape
