'In this thrilling live recording, the music bristles with the excitement of a first encounter, yet one enriched by long experience' Sunday Times

'This recording brings the trademark LSO Live sound quality and concert atmosphere to the opium-inspired musical love letter ... the LSO are on top form ... you can almost see the instruments dancing under Davis's command' The Observer

'The playing of the LSO for their chief conductor is genuinely world-class ... every rhythm is tightly sprung, every climax charged with energy, and the hallucinatory mood of the last two movements grows ever more intense' The Guardian

'From the ardent passions and fevered imaginings of the first movement on, all the excitement of these performances is captured' The Times
