Press reviews

With „Selva morale e spirituale“ musical Director Pablo Heras-Casado has brought a project to life that is especially dear to his heart. Apart from many other qualities, it is first and foremost the singular genius of Monteverdi that is conveyed here. This is touching in a perfectly un-pathetic way and at the same to so beautiful that it brings tears to the eyes. (…) A CD to take with you to an island.“ BR KLASSIK

„With the Balthasar Neumann Choir and Ensemble Pablo Heras-Casado has excellent musicians as well as experienced authorities on early Baroque music at his dispotition. The singers are performing as a choir as well as singing solo parts. Both with excellent results: the tutti present a perfecly homogenous ensemble sound while the challenging solo parts are perfectly presented as well.“ KULTURRADIO RBB
