PAUL VON KLENAU Symfoni nr. 9
”Klenaus Epitaph erweist sich als ein erschütterndes Werk, das ein kraftvoller, gewaltiger, bewegender Abgesang auf die Gräuel des Krieges und auf die Megalomanie des gestürzten Regimes ist. Ein in Form, Wirkung und Umsetzung beeindruckendes Werk.”

Nielsens Archaik
4/5 Stars

”Michael Schønwandt am Pult des mit brillianten Streichern aufwartenden Royal Danish Orchestra gestaltet die Melange aus archaischer Wucht, tänzerischer Eleganz und neoklassisch klarer Figuranenanalyse mit einer hervorragendem Ensemble sinnlich und nuanciert.”

CARL NIELSEN Maskarade
[..] "Si la précision musicale et la prise de son ne peuvent rivaliser avec celles de l’enregistrement studio, voilà néanmoins le témoignage d’une soirée on ne peut plus festive."

12/07/2016   Avant Scène Opéra

CARL NIELSEN Saul og David
[..] "Pour l'interprétation magistrale de Johan Reuter et la direction vibrante de Michael Schønwandt, ce premier DVD de l'œuvre s'impose avec évidence."

07/07/2016   ConcertoNet.com

CARL NIELSEN Saul og David
[..] "The performances are on the whole impressive. Johan Reuter is one of today’s top baritones and he gives a thoroughly committed performance in the title role. Niels Jørgen Riis has a tenor that glows ecstatically [..]. Bass Morten Staugaard is most impressive as Samuel. The young Norwegian baritone, Leif Jone Ølberg, displays a notably attractive voice as Abner." [..]

[..] "Das eindrucksvolle Werk wird vom Dänischen Radio-Symphonieorchester, dem DR Konzertchor und den vier Solisten unter Michael Schønwandt engagiert und auf hohem Niveau aufgeführt."

13/06/2016   The Classical Reviewer

PAUL VON KLENAU Symfoni nr. 9
[..] "This is a sprawling symphony full of terrific ideas throughout its long length. [..] a fascinating and hugely enjoyable listening experience. [..] Michael Schønwandt achieves fine results from his strong line up of soloists, fine choir and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra."

CARL NIELSEN Saul og David
"This exciting DVD presents Carl Nielsen’s remarkable opera Saul and David (1901) recorded live at the Royal Danish Opera, in a production celebrating Nielsen’s 150th birthday. It offers a stellar cast, Michael Schønwandt’s brilliant conducting, David Pountney’s provocative stage direction and optional English or Danish subtitles."[..]

PAUL VON KLENAU Symfoni nr. 9
[..]"Irregular, pero en conjunto muy interesante, vale la pena acercarse a ella. Michael Schønwandt, que la estrenó en 2014 (la partitura estuvo perdida hasta 2001), nos la trae en condiciones inmejorables."

11/05/2016   Kristeligt Dagblad

PAUL VON KLENAU: Symfoni nr. 9
4/6 Stars

"Rent musikalsk er det i lange stræk et imponerende stykke håndværk. DRSO spiller fremragende, dirigeret af Michael Schønwandt, ligesom DR KoncertKoret og de fire solosangere også yder deres bedste for at forløse den lange symfoni."

07/04/2016   MusicWeb International

CARL NIELSEN: Saul og David
"...admiration for a magnificent cast putting their all into a remarkable piece of early Nielsen, […] The upside of this performance is the quality of singing by both soloists and chorus and the magnificently powerful orchestra under the inspired direction of Michael Schønwandt."

"Quant au Saül de Johan Reuter, ses qualités d'acteur impressionnent sans doute davantage que ses pures forces vocales, mais il n'en compose pas moins un mémorable personnage ravagé par le doute et la jalousie."

02/02/2016   Kristeligt Dagblad

CARL NIELSEN: Saul og David
"På plussiden må noteres, at en række af legebarnet Pountneys påhit er meget virkningsfulde. Og hvad det musikalske angår er alt i de bedste hænder hos Det Kongelige Kapel og Operakor, dirigeret af Nielsen-specialisten Michael Schønwandt."
