Notes & Reviews:

"The pieces on this album are beautiful, often thrilling- which came as a surprise after reading the cosmically overblown notes. "Guillaume Connesson is irresistibly attracted to the infinitely massive", they began. Aren't we all!...you can hear fantasy, fascination, fear, and wonder. Eric le Sage is the excellent pianist. Fine readings by the orchestra, who seem energized by this project."- American Record Guide

The Telegraph
If there's another living composer who combines fantasy with shimmering orchestral virtuosity as brilliantly as Guillaume Connesson, I've yet to hear him.
