Press review

Ashkenazy recorded this work once before (...) but experience tells, and this new version smokes. (...) Power and clarity: what a wonderful combination! And what a thrilling sound Ashkenazy gets from his band for the initial sunrise, the entry into the forest, the majestic climax at the mountain's summit, and the best storm since Solti's Bavarian Radio recording. Top it all off with sensational sonics of demonstration quality, a nice bonus in the form of the Rosenkavalier Waltzes, and the result is a new landmark for Strauss fans. An alp never had it so good.
David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com, January 2002, Artistic Quality 10 / Sound Quality 1
