Grande successo per il M. Claus Peter Flor in occasione del suo ritorno sul podio della Dallas Symphony di cui è stato direttore principale ospite otto anni fa. Così si è espresso Scott Cantrell sul Dallas Morning News: "Claus Peter Flor hasn't lost his magic. Returning to lead the Dallas Symphony Orchestra after an eight-year absence, in a program of Wagner and Strauss, the German conductor once again demonstrated a visceral grip on musical tension and fastidious control of dynamics. Imparting never-ending urgency, it shaped crescendos and decrescendos, controlled balances and signaled important entrances. [...] In Death and Transfiguration, Flor's meticulous control of dynamics, over an enormous range, was amazing. From hushed opening lappings of strings, solemnly punctuated by timpani, to shattering climaxes, everything was gauged and balanced just so. But the effect felt wholly organic — indeed, inevitable — never contrived."
