"All the elements for a great recording are present here. Each of the three works is a masterpiece by one of the great composers of the 20th century. Each exploits the potential of a virtuoso string orchestra, and each includes brilliant solo- as well as ensemble-writing. Gordan Nikoli - violin virtuoso and conductor, and the excellent Netherlands Chamber Orchestra are powerful interpreters of these scores, and PentaTone has delivered their performances in rich, resonant, and, where appropriate, biting surround sound."

Robert Mc Colley
 

Fanfare

"The Netherlands Chamber Orchestra is a first-rate group, and leader Gordan Nikolic gets to the heart of each piece. His performances are lyrical and energetic without frivolity, and the string sound benefits greatly from being presented in the SACD format. The upper violins are bright, with natural edge yet no harshness, while the lower strings have excellent focus and splendid tone. The surround channels add just the right amount of hall reverberation to give the overall sound pleasant amounts of warmth and presence."

Fabulous interpretation by Gordon Nikolc and the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra.Ó

Guy Wagner

Pizzicato Magazine

“The Netherlands Chamber Orchestra ia a top flight ensemble, with crisp and articulate playing. Gordan Nikoli?, their leader, is also the solo violin player. His tone is superb.”

"Gordan Nkolic, who has had a distinguished career bith as a violin soloist, orchestral plyer (beginning in 1999 he wad concertmaster of the London Symphony), and chamber music performer, and now is Artistic Director and Leader of the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, leads the group in vivid performances of this music.”

"The skilled Netherlands Chamber Orchestra players communicate successfully both the lighter moments and the heavier emotions in these works, and their lovely string ensemble tone is perfectly captured by PentaTone’s engineers.”
