“The result is touching. Through the distance and the acrylic glass walls the ensemble merges into an exciting whole.”

Andrew Mellor, Gramophone

“This is a heartfelt, rooted performance of the piece from the Munich Radio Orchestra and its concertmaster… There is a strong sense of narrative sound from Repušić’s orchestra…”

Matthias Siehler, Rondo (02/01/2021)

“The Munich Radio Orchestra or, rather, their strings, under the baton of their chief conductor Ivan Repušić, selected in the recording studio of the Bavarian Radio in June even three appropriate pieces by the Latvian composer Peteris Vasks, born in 1946… It is a CD of intensive, concentrated listening. Certainly just the right thing for the present that has been more innerly oriented.”
