Press Quotes

‘All of the music is well played and energetically led by the conductor. This is a good introduction to Weill’s German show music’ (American Record Guide)

‘Does it all work? Pretty much. As already indicated, the performances are never less than idiomatic thanks to Fitz-Gerald’s evident sympathy with Weill’s subtle changing idiom and committed playing from the Basel musicians’ (Arcana)
