Notes and Editorial Reviews

Tremblay shapes Bruckner's long lines with care and patience, especially the Adagio, which – at over 24 minutes – is one of the more expansive versions in the recorded catalogue. The conductor gives every indication of adoring this music while avoiding willful gestures or distended phrasing. When Tremblay and company arrive at that magnificent peak, you feel the thrill of the journey.

-- Gramophone, [February 2008]
