'But with the Czech Philharmonic on fine form and well recorded, Beaumont gives the music a greater sweep, combined with an attention to detail that elucidates Zemlinsky's masterly twists and turns of motifs, use of orchestral colour and harmonic shifts. By its side, the early D minor symphony, Zemlinksy's graduation piece of 1893, struggles to make and impression, though Beaumont succeeds in conveying its youthful vigour and melodic colour.'
BBC Music Magazine

'The Die Seejungfrau (The Mermaid) Fantasy, based on Hans Andersen's tale, is truly wonderful. You'd be forgiven for mistaking it for a Hollywood score. Beautifully recorded, masterfully played.'
