Notes & Reviews:

Listening to Sylvain Cambreling's interpretations of the music of Berlioz is an experience - a fact already been well documented in several previous recordings. This recording presents Berlioz's symphony for Viola and Orchestra, "Harold In Italy," plus exciting performances of Berlioz favorites.

BBC Music Magazine
A dramatic, almost operatic performance of Berlioz's post-Byronic symphony-concerto... Jean-Éric Soucy exhibits a stronger personality than some more famous Harolds on record. ... Cambreling proves himself a born Berliozian, bringing to fresh life the composer's characteristically bold colours, restless cross-rhythms and daring metrical layerings, before driving the Roman Carnival-esque Brigands's Orgy to a truly Allegro frenetico finish.
