"... The Bizet and the Fauré in particular are performances any maestro could be proud of. It is good to hear the Suisse Romande still offering French music to the manner born."Dave Saemann

"... Yamada displays an interpretative nous, strength of personality and scrupulous attention to detail that are singularly impressive, and he draws some (for the most part) winningly alert and tastefully refined playing from the OSR (whose principal flute and harp cover themselves in glory). His reading of Fauré’s adorable Masques et Bergamasques balances poise and spirit to consistenly enchanting effect, the valedictory ’pastorale’ distilling a particularly affecting poignancy and rare grace... I for one eagerly await future offerings from this gifted, budding maestro."

Performance ***** Recording *****
"...The recording, made in the generous but never overwhelming acoustic of the Victoria Hall, Geneva, is both sensual and finely balanced."
