Audiophile Audition

Gary Lemco

“... The [Schumann] shimmers in luxuriant energies and lean, warm evocations of Nature's bounty… Exuberant rocket figures culminate in the restatement of the main theme in jubilant horns, the strong rockets rising and tumbling in playful dalliance.”

International Record Review

Nigel Simeone

“Kertesz was a direct, unfussy director, but an imaginative one too - this is vibrant music-making. What we have are lithe, strongly projected and very polished readings of two great symphonies of the Romantic era.”
