Wagner: Götterdämmerung – Soloists, Hallé, Sir Mark Elder
‘The orchestra, reinforced for the occasion to more than 100 and with enough harps on- and off-stage to re-stock Paradise, responded with world-class playing from every section. Elder’s Hallé is now transcendent.’

The Daily Telegraph on the Hallé’s performance of Götterdämmerung, May 2009

"...Elder’s Götterdämmerung adds up to a most fulfilling and modestly priced dramatic and musical experience that no serious Wagnerian should miss."
 

Jed Distler
 

ClassicsToday.com - 21 October 2010

"...This is a magnificent achievement, the jewel in the crown of the Hallé’s own record label."

Colin Clarke

Fanfare - January/February 2011
