Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The French Canadian invasion of classical music is no joke. Besides Yannick Nézet-Séguin in Philadelphia , Jacques Lacombe is being installed at the New Jersey Symphony while two other young conductors - Jean-Marie Zeitouni and Jean-Philippe Tremblay - are crossing the border with increasing frequency. The latter conductor just issued a complete Beethoven symphony cycle that might initially inspire cynicism: How good could the Orchestre de la Francophonie be, anyway? It's excellent... With Tremblay's lean textures, little vibrato, and zippy tempos, the period-instrument movement is a basic point of reference, which partly accounts for the consistency of quality here. But he brings to that his own brand of crisp rhythms, endlessly lilting Read more melodic phrasing, and aggressive momentum (particularly in Symphony No. 4) that never lapses into bullying.... Recorded live, the performances are rarely without a strong electrical current." -- David Patrick Stearns, Philly.com Read less
