    Pizzicato: Wie in den anderen drei Aufnahmen verdient auch ‘Das Rheingold’ Interesse vor allem wegen der starken Persönlichkeit des Dirigenten Paternostro, der seinem Orchester einen transparenten, dramaturgisch gut gestalteten und spannungsvollen Klang abverlangt […] das Dirigat Roberto Paternostros, der mit viel Gestaltungsfantasie so manches an Klangwirkung zustande bringt, das den Charakter der Musik stärker ausreizt als wir das gewöhnt sind. Eine reiche Skala dynamischer Werte, und eine nicht weniger beeindruckende Palette an Farben zeigen eine talentierte dirigentische Hand.

    L'Avant-Scène Opéra: Roberto Paternostro dirigeait preste, collant à la suractivité de la scène, exaltant la modernité radicale de la « petite comédie » voulue par Wagner pour ouvrir sa Tétralogie

    Der Neue Merker: [...] gelang dem Dirigenten, der mit großer Plastizität Gesungenes und Instrumentales zu einem aufregenden Ganzen zu verschmelzen wusste und neben allen dramatischen Höhen und Abgründen auch die Kantabilität aller Gesangspartien zur Geltung bringt und uns auch den ganzen Witz des Musikdramatikers aus der genialen Partitur heraushören lässt.

    The Ride of the Valkyries

    Hojotoho! Hojotoho! Heijaha! Heijaha!


    pizzicato: … deserve our attention in great part thanks to the forceful personality of conductor Paternostro
    Stereoplay: Conductor Roberto Paternostro offers so much more than a congenial accompaniment to the singers: the leitmotivs are worked out in a crystal-clear fashion. He allows for absolutely precise playing in the preludes, produces a Todesverkündung scene exhibiting the transparency of chamber music, and creates a 'Ride of the Valkyries' which is free of hollow bathos.

    Fono Forum: Meaning is imbued in this performance by Roberto Paternostro, whose exegesis of the score is characterized by a wealth of detail paired with constant observance of the overarching line. Convincing – and refreshing – is the lack of bathos.
