“Conductor Dima Slobodeniouk and the orchestra carried over their good balances and clearly defined textures into scintillating accounts of two popular symphonic poems by Richard Strauss. Don Juan (1888) was a high point of Strauss’s period as the enfant terrible of German music. It was his breakthrough success, thereby establishing his international reputation. The performers’ voluptuous sound-world, sweeping melodic lines and propulsive tempos conveyed its high-voltage energy and uber-romantic ardour.” – The Australian
