"The sound quality of Reference Recordings places them in a league by themselves; the dynamic range, impact and clarity of this disc is nothing short of sensational. Oue’s performance of Ein Heldenleben is among the best in the catalogue, the battle scene suitably thrilling. But it is the magnificent account of the orchestral suite from the opera Die Frau ohne Schatten that makes the disc very special, the music’s gaudy colours explored to the full."
David Denton - The Yorkshire Post

"The orchestra covers itself with glory, and the spectacular recording doesn’t miss a thing in the way of either brilliance or sumptuousness. One of the most impressive orchestral releases of the last few years."
Richard Freed - WETA Radio
"Brass playing that just won’t quit. Leinsdorf’s excellent arrangment of interludes from Die Frau ohne Schatten provides a gorgeous filler. Joyfully recommended!"
