Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Though there is a fraction more edge on high violins, the CD version superbly reproduces the beauty and richness of the Montreal sound, clarifying to a degree the often over-thick orchestration of Rosenthal... Dutoit has flair and swagger in plenty too, and the sound is richer. He also has the advantage of a substantial fill-up, and on CD the contrast or orchestral manners between Gounod and Rosenthal is most striking, with the beauty and refinement of the orchestration superbly brought out." -- Edward Greenfield, The Gramophone "Though there is a fraction more edge on high violins, the CD version superbly reproduces the beauty and richness of the Montreal sound, clarifying to a degree the often over-thick orchestration of Rosenthal...
