“As an example of luscious late-Romantic orchestral writing, Die Seejungfrau could scarcely be bettered: a fine performance of a gorgeous orchestral score” (MusicWeb)
“Steinbacher’s technique on the other hand is immaculate; how gracefully those swirls and leaps are articulated. Foster’s support is always vivid and colourful” (MWeb) “Steinbacher’s expressive cantabile alternates with enthusiastic verve in the virtuoso passages.” (Gramophone)
