Reviews

'The Scherzo's Trio works especially well and there are times in the finale where the music takes flight in a way that I've virtually never heard in an orchestral performance (just get that piano). Those passages alone would deem the disc an enjoyable supplement to your existing Bruckner collection. Alban Berg's colour-conscious arrangement of Strauss's Wine, Women and Song (where the harmonium plays a very prominent role), lustily played, is both an appropriate and a happy conclusive fill-up' (Gramophone)» More

'Using a 20-strong ensemble, including the harmonium beloved of that society, Payne creates a beautiful pinpoint effect that illuminates Bruckner's argument and makes it seem even more productively spacious. Berg's transcription of Johann Strauss II's Wein, Weib und Gesang follows' (The Sunday Times)» More

'Anthony Paynes Bearbeitung der 2. Symphonie ist ein kammermusikalisches Glanzstück … Trevor Pinnock leitet das Royal Academy Of Music Soloists Ensemble sehr umsichtig und achtet in seiner Interpretation mehr auf Feinschliff als auf Bruckners großen Atem. Alban Bergs Bearbeitung von Johann Strauss' Wein, Weib und Gesang schließt das Programm dieser CD dann mit einem Augenzwinkern. Eine hervorragende Klangqualität macht das Hörvergnügen komplett' (Pizzicato, Luxembourg)
