Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Absolute Sound Super Disc List"

"...Should be listened to with caution by anyone with a heart condition." -- Paul Festa, Salon online magazine

"Enjoy equally sensational sonics in a disc of daemonic influences, including Liszt's serious Mephisto Waltz and Dukas's comic masterpiece The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Oue is a born showman, and the orchestra is certainly willing – the dramatic ending to Franck's Le Chausseur Maudit packed full of virtuosity, while the brass is superb in Malcolm Arnold's Tam O'Shanter." -- David Denton, The Yorkshire Post
