Review By Philip Haldeman,American Record Guide,April 2000

Kontaxakis was the winner of the 2005 Francisco Tarrega Competition and thus appears on Naxos's Laureate series. Like most prizewinners, he has impeccable technique, gorgeous tone, and a balanced interpretive approach. It remains to be seen whether he develops a recognizable, unique voice, but this recording is quite promising.


Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Like others in his Bruckner series, Georg Tintner’s Naxos recording of the Ninth Symphony is a match in every way for the finest rival versions, whatever the price. The refinement of pianissimos brings out the full mystery of the massive outer movements, while the delicate fantasy of the Scherzo is brilliantly touched on a high speed, with a touch of wildness. The final Adagio builds up in exultation: this may not have been planned as the finale, but here it becomes the most deeply satisfying conclusion. The playing of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra is superb, with recording at once transparent and refined, as well as weighty.

BRUCKNER: Symphony No. 9, WAB 109
Review By Raymond Chapman Smith,The Advertiser (Adelaide),December 1999

"Georg Tintner's unique interpretation of Bruckner's majestic Ninth Symphony is a milestone recording...a superb testament to both composer and conductor. Tintner's unerring choice of tempi, his rare grasp of Bruckner's oceanic structure, is as awesome as the music and he draws remarkable playing from the Royal Scottish National Orchestra."
