Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...cohesive in structure, dynamic in the emotional turmoil of the scherzo and, throughout the symphony [No. 3], alert to the music’s atmospheres and colours, whether vivid or muted. In the more transparent textures of the Seventh Symphony, which offer such a contrast to the intensity of the Third’s finale, the impact is similarly involving and impressive for its sureness of interpretative touch. Karabits adopts the mysterious quiet ending to the finale, but adds the perky, applause-inducing alternative on a separate track. Altogether this is a highly auspicious start to what should be a keenly collected series." - Geoffrey Norris, The Telegraph "...cohesive in structure, dynamic in the emotional turmoil of the scherzo and, throughout the symphony [No. 3], alert to the music’s atmospheres and colours, whether vivid or muted.
