Gramophone Magazine Editor's Choice - August 2005

Finalist: Orchestral Recording of the Year 2005 --BBC Music Magazine

“…a very clean-cut, airy reading that avoids excessive sweetness and achieves a sense of drama as propulsive as a film score. Järvi's orchestra responds splendidly, with what sounds like a real Hardanger fiddle adding its tangy tone to the solos, and excellent vocal forces.” --BBC Music Magazine, June 2005 *****

“Jarvi conducts his Estonian forces in warmly expressive, full-blooded readings...In the Hall of the Mountain King is very exciting, with a wild accelerando and vigorous vocal contributions.” --Penguin Guide, 2011 edition

"At a time when fine reissues of Grieg's Peer Gynt seem to be thick on the ground (Blomstedt and Järvi senior top of the pile), it's good to have a brand new recording so full of life and incident. Lighter on the vocals and speech than the sets by either Blomstedt or Järvi père, Paavo secures splendid performances from his Estonian choir and orchestra." --Gramophone

"All in all this is a disc of superb music-making." --International Record Review
