Pressestimmen / press reviews
Das ist Musik, vor allem in opus 4, an der Schwelle zur Moderne, die in dieser Wiedergabe durchaus noch spät-romantisch schwelgen und glühen darf - um im nächsten Moment zum authentischen Ausdruck des 20. Jahrhunderts zu werden. Es gefällt vor allem die Homogenität des Klangbildes, die ein überaus intensives Spiel ermöglicht. (Die Rheinpfalz, 19 Juni 2010)

Don't be fooled or put off in any way. It may be intrinsic to this ensemble's basic mission to perform on the historic instruments housed in the Smithsonian, but if you think that deters this from being one of the most gorgeous and best recent versions of the original chamber arrangement of Schoenberg's "Verklaerte Nacht," think again. This is an exceptional disc in every way-- great performance of one of the most powerful of all late-Romantic masterworks and its perennial disk-mate, the Chamber Symphony from only a few years later. The DVD of the Smithsonian performance with commentary by the likes of Reinbert deLeeuw is a splendid addition to it. (The Buffalo News, Jeff Simon, 4 October, 2009)
