"Like his mentor Mariss Jansons, Andris Nelsons has developed a special affinity with the music of Richard Strauss, in which his conducting combines a thrilling impulse with an appreciation of the finer points of instrumental detail and evocative atmosphere. In a mammoth work such as Also sprach Zarathustra, Strauss does lay traps for interpreters who maybe have less finely honed instincts of taste, pacing and orchestral texture than Nelsons does, but his vision of this half-hour, Nietzsche-inspired score is of such clarity and integrity as to cast aside the accusations of posturing and garishness that are sometimes levelled against it." - Geoffrey Norris, The Telegraph
