Notes & Reviews:

Awarded the Prix de Rome in 1955, René Maillard achieved fame as a young French composer with works such as the virtuosic, Baroque-inspired Concerto Grosso and the Concerto da Camera No. 2, which combines classical and folk elements, before taking up an executive career outside the world of music. Returning to composition in 2000, Maillard has continued to create new works of power and beauty such as Surviving after Hiroshima, based on the dramatic true story of Kyoko Hama.

American Record Guide
It's good to hear the Royal Philharmonic, a rare pleasure on this side of the Atlantic. They sound eloquent in the cantata and vibrant in the concertos... The soloist in the cantata, Mezzo Sarah Jouffrey is strong and compelling without ever sounding strident...
