Press Quotes      Deutsch
"[This] orchestration of one of Schubert's longest songs ... showed how much Mahler's inspiration was rooted in Schubert and how much Schubert anticipated Mahlerian world-­weariness. Glanert's orchestration, all low ­woodwind and uneasy pizzicatos, is extraordinary: towards the end there is a surge in the strings that has you ­choking back tears ... it was a remarkable experience." (Tim Ashley, The Guardian, 21 Feb 2010)

"Here [the song] was given an ingenious new orchestration by Detlev Glanert. Though full of echoes from Schubert’s orchestral sound world – everything from Rosamunde to the Great C Major Symphony – it also hinted, in its agitated passages, at how much Mahler took up Schubert’s lyrical threads and wove them into his own vast tapestries." (Richard Morrison, The Times, 22 Feb 2010)
