Review by Geoffrey Norris, Telegraph:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/classicalcdreviews/8407248/Strauss-Eine-Alpensinfonie-Salomes-Tanz-CD-review.html

“From the dark opening to the sunlit blazes on the mountaintop, Nelsons’s approach to Strauss’s Alpine Symphony is sharply defined, the textures malleable yet tightly controlled and the music animated with passion. The CBSO plays gloriously both in the symphony and in the sultriness and wild excess of Salome’s Dance of the Seven Veils.” Rating: * * * *
