"...This new recording is recommended primarily for the quality of execution, though lucidity and precision are not its only virtues. Frankly, Ondine’s promise of a new cycle of these brilliant symphonies is in itself gratifying..."

Performance **** Recording ****
"...There are other good versions of this sumptuous work ... but this new Finnish account is at least their equal in impetious and recorded sound. It’s especially valuable for the coupling, the rarely-recorded Chamber Symphony that was Enescu’s last work... Hannu Lintu and his players sympathetically expound this elusive piece, at once elegiac and exploratory... At once cosmopolitan and nostalgically Romanian, this is a little masterpiece."
Calum MacDonald - BBC Music magazine - November 2012
