Reviews of the concert from which this recording was taken:
„John Tomlinson and Michelle DeYoung were vocally so commanding as to render „choreography“ entirely superfluous. Tomlinson's cavernous voice seemed to embody the very interior world of his castle - its sadness, darkness, emptiness - his Hungarian so vivid and expressive in itself that it became another sonority in Bartok's aural palette. He was quite extraordinary. Musically stunning ..." The Arts Desk

"The part of Judith was well taken by Michelle DeYoung but it was the portrayal of Tomlinson that stole the show. At first predatory and prowling - no one can prowl like John Tomlinson - he visibly collapsed into himself as his secrets were exposed. And never was that magnificently gnarled tone put to better use." The Evening Standard
