Notes & Reviews:

Classic FM Magazine
Rarely has this music sounded so well on CD...The Trevi fountain dénouement and climax section of Pines let rip, but Neschling also unearths startling subtleties. Festivals tends to be played as a blunt crowd-pleaser, but Neschling is careful to emphasisie the push-pull rhythmic contrasts of the finale and incidental details...The best Roman trilogy of recent times.

International Record Review
A criticism often levelled at the sequence is that the works themselves tend to become more ostentatious as they proceed: to which end, John Neschling's ample textural refinement and rhythmic incisiveness is its own justification.

Gramophone Magazine
It may seem bold of BIS to rely on a relatively untried orchestra and its Brazilian conductor but such confidence has amply paid off...The spectacular BIS recording in SACD brings out all the atmospheric qualities.
