'Tausk and the BBCNOW gave us an assured and atmospheric reading'.

'Müller-Schott’s singing tone was a delight, and he and Tausk took time to allow things to breathe'.

'Müller-Schott’s warm, singing tone shone out and captivated a silent audience'.

'An impressively detailed performance of this crazy tour de force for the orchestra, and a strong Proms debut for Tausk'.
