“Janowski’s lucid and idiomatic accounts are self-recommending”
International Record Review
Recording of the Month
“I’m sorry I didn’t have the Ansermet versions of these works to hand, to compare the orchestra then and now, but I think the great Swiss maestro would have been proud of his old band.”
“The sound is the typical excellent Pentatone sound that I have come to love. Rich, warm, dynamic and detailed, the recording captures the sound of the magnificent Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. I have one other SACD of this symphony, with Pierre Monteux and the Boston Symphony (Living Stereo) and while the performances are similar in quality, the sound of the modern Pentatone edges the Living Stereo by a wee bit.”
"Orchestral disc of the month, BBC Music Magazine “Marek Janowski draws on all his operatic experience to make the melodic lines live and sing…. Best of all for me is the way Janowski responds to the variety of harmonic tension in both works: the more chromatic a chord, the more space he tends to give it without ever obstructing the flow”.
BBC Music Magazine
"These are essentially two high quality interpretations of two wonderful French symphonies. Recorded with great detail on Pentatone’s hybrid SACD format, they represend a sound investment in every sense of the word."
