Oleg Caetani and his down-under musicians give this hair-raisingly impetuous but always disciplined music the strongest possible advocacy, with Chandos’ Super Audio engineering adding an ambience and finish of hyperreality. This CD is the best possible introduction to a composer who deserves far wider exposure. The 2008 Want List begins to grow.
Fanfare

Tansman’s judgement was perhaps both right and misplaced: there is much to admire, especially in the concluding double fugue, but as a whole the symphony does seem a bit of a let-down, despite the committed advocacy of Caetani and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Their Seventh and Eighth are splendid indeed. The Chandos sound is excellent and, even if No. 9 misfires, this is a disc well worth investigating

Fanfare

I have no doubt as to the quality of this music, and I am delighted to have renewed acquaintance with a first-class composer through such excellent recordings as these. The quality of music surely demands the permanence of recording, and I could not imagine this important undertaking better done than by the first-rate Melbourne SO and its gifted conductor. This CD is an important addition to the catalogue and the recording quality is state-of-the-art.
