"...this performance is very fine indeed and, in the Norwegian soprano Turid Karlsen and Franz Grundheber, it has dedicated soloists. The incidental music to Cymbeline makes an attractive coupling, also edited by the conductor. Scored for full-scale orchestra ... it is full of resonance and inventive sonorities. It makes a good introduction to the composer and, like the Symphonie, is very well recorded."
The Penguin Guide - 1000 Greatest Classical Recordings 2011-12

Zemlinskys full-on, late-Romantic sound-world comes up especially well in the Czech Philharmonics playing, warmly recorded in the Prague Rudolfinum. Theres no denying Beaumonts unique authority in this music…
BBC Music Magazine

This is a very fine production; Zemlinsky scholar Antony Beaumont obviously knows what he wants, and the Czech Philharmonic respond superbly. Turid Karlsen has a clear, soaring soprano, and she manages the particularly difficult second section better than most sopranos who have recorded the work… This is a worthy addition to the Zemlinsky discography on all counts.

…Antony Beaumont has done more than anyone to ratchet up… recognition for Alexander von Zemlinsky.
