'The violinist, Olivier Charlier, is staggeringly virtuosic without ever once being self-consciously showy.'
BBC Music Magazine on CHAN 9758 (Lalo)

'…most beautifully played by Olivier Charlier and the BBC Philharmonic…'
The Telegraph on CHAN 9504 (Dutilleux)

'The entire disc is beautifully engineered, pretty well in the demonstration class as regards warmth and immediacy'
International Record Review

'The composer, an experienced conductor secures fine performances: Olivier Charlier evidently fell more than a little in love with Schurmann's violin lines in his Concerto; the BBC Philharmonic play splendidly and are admirably recorded.'
Gramophone

This is a most satisfying release, very thoughtfully directed by the composer from the podium and with Chandos' usual top-notch production control.'
Tempo

'Sound and playing are outstanding.'
American Record Guide

'Olivier Charlier surmounts these [technical demands] with absolute security, maintaining his characteristic sweetness of tone.'
The Strad
