Cappella Amsterdam
Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Estonian National Symphony Orchestra
released March 2014 Harmonia Mundi


"Powerful and beautifully articulated performances."
The Guardian UK ****(30-03-2014) complete review

"Dutch conductor Daniel Reuss and his chamber choir Cappella Amsterdam strike again. (...) A young, agile sound of the choir attributes to a pureness and directness. Also the orchestra sounds colourful as well as potent. With a sensitive ear Reuss knows how to strike a tight devoted sound that is free of sentimentality."
De Telegraaf ****(29-03-2014) complete review

"Cappella Amsterdam and conductor Daniel Reuss, fortified with vocal and instrumental troops from Estonia, give a accurate presentation of this. The sound of the choir is as clear as the sky above the Baltic sea, through which solo soprano Carolyn Sampson sails superiorly."
De Volkskrant ***** (26-03-2014) complete review

"D'abord, on tombe en pâ moison devant ces textures chorales dia phanes aux teintes douces, aux lignes toujours nettes. Là se reconnaît la patte d'un formidable chef de choeur, Daniel Reuss, qui réunit ici deux ensembles fortement marqués de son empreinte, la Cappella Amsterdam et le Choeur de chambre philharmonique estonien."
Diapason***** (april 2014)

"Daniel Reuss bénéficie d'une excellente définition spatiale, ce qui lui permet d'intégrer les choers dans l'orchestre sans pour autant en altérer la clarté. Les choers supplantent ici, en termes de justesse, d'attaque et díntonation, les versions antérieures."
Classica (april 2014)

"These are very fine choirs indeed, responding so well to the text as the music suddenly drives forward. The balance between choir and orchestra is ideal. Reuss finds so many little subtleties”
The Classical Reviewer (april 2014) complete review

"All forces perform with aplomb and a fine sense to the style required, and the coupling can’t be beat. If Poulenc’s liturgical masterpieces interest you at all, this is one you will want, beautifully recorded in the Estonia Concert Hall in Tallinn."
Audiophile Audition (24-03-2014) complete review

"This performance of Poulenc’s Stabat Mater is a very fine one. Carolyn Sampson is a wonderful soloist and the combined choirs, which number just short of fifty singers, perform Poulenc’s varied and demanding music expertly. The orchestral contribution is first rate and Daniel Reuss clearly believes in the music. The performers have been recorded in excellent sound."
Musicweb International (april 2014) complete review

"What is most important about this recorded performance is Reuss’ sensitivity of that diverse spectrum of sonorities. True to Poulenc’s intentions, he endows each of the twelve movements with its own unique characterization; and the harmonia mundi recording team is outstanding it capturing the ways in which the different instruments in the ensemble contribution to shaping those characterizations."
Examiner.com (5-4- 2014) complete review

"Die Chöre tragen diese Musik, denn sie sind eigentlich immer beteiligt. Die beiden Chöre singen in dieser Interpretation unter der Leitung von Daniel Reuss sehr klangvoll und eindringlich - alles klingt ausgewogen, intensiv und tief anrührend."
Kulturradio*****(18-3- 2014) complete review

"C’est une œuvre dense, ramassée, poignante, que Daniel Reuss, la Cappella Amsterdam, Carolyn Sampson et les musiciens estoniens interprètent magnifiquement : ils en soulignent le climat et la gravité, affirment à la fois sa profondeur et ses exubérances sans jamais se perdre dans une mise en scène des émotions qui viendrait en altérer la bouleversante sincérité "
