“…Bernhard Berchtold brilliantly leads the ensemble with his elegant and flexible tenor, who is confident in the high register and also gives the careless crown prince a clear acting profile. The young American Jonathan Michie has a promising cavalier baritone in the role of Rochester, while Anett Fritsch, who has proven herself in many Mozart roles, musically somewhat neglected, sounds slightly sour as Catherine, which of course suits the role…”

“…the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Karolis Variakojis plays the scores in a superb manner, virtuoso, tonally differentiated and expressive. The sound engineering is excellent and the accompanying text by Frank J. Oteri extensive and detailed in the description of the musical events.”

Guido Krawinkel – klassik-heute.de – 27 July 2022

“… Muhly has set these sometimes mysterious, sometimes very direct texts to music very dramatically and imaginatively, giving equally important parts to the orchestra as well as the soloists. Phan and violinist Colin Jacobsen interpret the music very expressively, very rhetorically, so ending an album that guarantees a gripping listening experience and, first and foremost, once again shows Nicholas Phan to be an outstanding singer with clear diction and impeccable vocal delivery who excels in the song repertoire.” *****

Remy Franck – Pizzicato.lu – 13 August 2022

“… His [Lorte] interpretations are intelligently thought out, the rhythms are sophisticated and truly at their finest. He also plays the mazurkas with great internalization and feeling. The Tarantelle op. 43 is highly virtuosic and played with windy lightness. Another highlight is the Rondo op. 16, which he differentiates very well in an interpretation that combines virtuosity, élan and rhetorical rubato, the whole with an astonishing palette of colors that makes the work very dramatic…” ****

“… Norman’s music is deeply romantic, influenced by his years of study in Leipzig. The three shorter works (Concert Overture, Funeral March, Shakespeare Overture) are already heard with a gripping, passionate character by conductor Johannes Gustavsson. He also conducts the third symphony with great commitment and contrast. The orchestra unfolds a sound that is as gripping as it is soft and slightly dark…” ****

“… Brilliant interpretations make this Paladi discovery tour a musical delight.”  Remy Franck

“… The piano concerto, with Oliver Triendl as soloist, starts like a whirlwind, and all the musicians put their full energy into this at times ecstatic bundle of music. A wonderful contrast is provided by the second movement, a lament in which soloist and orchestra listen very delicately into the silence. Eugene Tzigane stretches the tension to bursting point and shapes the climax of the movement passionately and stirringly. The finale, in turn, is a single bubbling fountain of virtuosity and tonal brilliance. No less expressive is the Violin Concerto from 2002  Here, too, the performers live the music with every fiber of their souls…” Uwe Krusch
