Happy birthday, Franz Liszt! The Beethoven Orchestra Bonn under its conductor Stefan Blunier and the pianist Claudius Tanski present orchestral works and piano music by this Austro-Hungarian great, including the overture to Goethe’s Torquato Tasso and the Totentanz of 1849, on the occasion of the two hundredth anniversary of his birth. A finely nuanced extra comes in the form of an orchestration of La lugubre gondola by John Adams.

…I already indicated the excellent qualities of the soloists especially Franziska Hirzel and Birgit Remmert who sing with that important ethereal intensity. Kofman conducts with the ideal tonic and lets the music move along quite magically. The SACD sound comes out trumps on my Sony SACD-11 player and I really have nothing but an unqualified recommendation for this beautiful set.

…The vivid MDG recording is slightly distanced, so the volume needs to be increased considerably for its fine qualities to become evident. Balances between voices and orchestra are excellent, and for those listening in multi-channel the surround speakers have been used to great effect for the off-stage brass, distant bells and chorus in the Act 3 cataclysmic immolation of Irrelohe castle. There is no applause or audience noise but the movement of singers on the stage is clearly defined with very few extraneous sounds being captured by the microphones. This is the latest addition to the Schrecker discography and will be welcomed by all admirers of the composer and can be confidently recommended.

"Even though Stefan Blunier's 2011 recording of Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 8 in C minor is a lot to digest, timed at over 88 minutes and stretched almost to the breaking point, this is a deeply compelling performance and an impressive recording that deserves all the time listeners devote to it. (…) MDG's natural, unprocessed sound is a great aid to capturing the orchestra's subtle dynamics, and the live recording has very few extraneous sounds. Highly recommended." ~AMG

…Taras Shtonda is a classic Russian bass, profoundly resonant and ringing, and he sings with great passion and dignity. Soprano Iano Tamar is no less effective, bringing a full, grounded tone and deeply felt urgency to the symphony. The sound of MDG's SACD is fully natural, and beautifully clean and balanced, as is usual for the label.

…The strong point in each case is the sound from MDG, which reveals the complex orchestration and what might be called the inner life of each work. Part of a full cycle of Shostakovich symphonies from conductor Roman Kofman, this disc merits strong consideration, especially for audiophile buyers.

…Almost sixty-five minutes of absolutely breathtaking music! The four movements full of programmatic allusions and deliberate associations continue without a break. The composer constructs a system full of leitmotifs and with great skill links his themes to quotations from well-known revolutionary songs to form a unique dramaturgy…
