Reviews

"Das Rundfunksorchester unter Schønwandt setz sich hingebungsvoll und sinnlich mit dem Landsmann auseinander (sehr schöne Streicher) Ausgezeichneter Klang" (Klassik Heute)

"It is a sweetly melodious creation of great charm. The excellent Michael Schønwandt secures playing and singing of real affection and commitment from his admirable forces" (Gramophone)

"Der var engang is a national classic in Denmark, and with reason: It is enchanting from beginning to end ... In an ideal world, you would claim the cost of this disc against your medical insurance.
Strongly recommended, obviously"
(Fanfare)
