“Both of the chestnuts here – the Afternoon of a Faun and the Boléro – take on a fresh and more involving quality due not only to the superb playing but the fine 5.0 channel sound reproduction.”
“The Netherlands Philharmonic orchestra depicts in a subtle way the light French spirit: colourful, virtuoso, and with a lot of attention for detail. The recording is spacious without loosing the transparency which is vital for this repertoire.”
Frits de Haan
“PentaTone reproduces the delicate tones of celesta, marimba, vibraphone, tubular bells and piano strings struck by sticks with exquisite immediacy, making this a perfect SA-CD demonstration track when the demonstration is about timbral fidelity rather than loudness or surround effects.”
“Pentatone offers an attractive collection of French music recorded in the Yakuit Hall of "Beurs van Berlage" in Amsterdam, March 2004. Conductor Yakov Kreizberg continues to impressive as one of the finer younger conductors on the contemporary scene, and the Netherlands Philharmonic plays very well.”
“Yakov Kreizberg and his Dutch Orchestra play this French Music in a splendid way and in the right French spirit. Highly recommended!”
