 Hannu Lintu Conductor
 Lintu, Hannu

George Enescu is Romania’s most important composer - and one of the most neglected composers of the 20th century. With this release the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of its artistic director Hannu Lintu demonstrates a master of great orchestral colour and impressive imagination.
Artistic director of the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra since 2009, Hannu Lintu has rapidly been creating an international career and is a sought-after conductor. From 2013 onward he will assume the post of chief conductor of the Finnish RSO.
This release will be the first of an Enescu cycle with Hannu Lintu. Two more - featuring, among others, symphonies no. 1 and 3 - will follow 2013 and 2014. 

 "...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
