Belohlávek's performance is masterful . . . There's a spacious, burnished quality to the sound, the orchestra's dark-timbred strings and emollient, airborne flutes; the choir all warmth and substance . . . The four soloists fit their differing roles well: bass Jongmin Park and mezzo Elisabeth Kulman are solemn yet supple; Eri Nakamura's bell-like soprano and Michael Spyres's buoyant tenor are well matched in their duet. It's a moving farewell.

. . . in a performance like this, under the inspired direction of Jiri Belohlávek, and with a fine team of soloists, it definitely makes an impact . . . The soloists are especially good here, notably the tenor Michael Spyres . . .

. . . ein ziemlich monumentaler, emotional kontrollierter Klang, ohne Spur von Pathos und Sentimentalität . . . Diese Aufnahme ist also sehr entspannt . . . ganz auf Schönklang angelegt . . . Das Solistenquartett ist exzellent, der Prager Philharmonische Chor singt phänomenal gut und das Orchester rundet das alles auf gewohntem Niveau ab.

. . . an idiomatic and above all very noble account of this work. The Czech Philharmonic and the Prague Philharmonic Choir are as excellent performers as the four soloists.
