Notes & Reviews:

The Telegraph
This recording bears out the judgment that this orchestra is one to watch, but it's not a complete triumph. The sound has clarity but not much body - while the perky counterpoint in Nobilissima Visione comes over well, the weighty music in Mathis der Maler seems unengaging.

The Guardian
Very finely judged and carefully detailed performances...especially in the reflective sections of Mathis de Maler and Nobilissima Visione, which have a real radiance. Ideally, the Weber elaborations need a bit more brilliance than they get here, but otherwise these performances of music that is distinctly unfashionable at present can be thoroughly recommended.

Financial Times
Neschling, a Brazilian with a European career, inspires the Sao Paolo Symphony Orchestra to first-rate performances.

Gramophone Magazine
His sparkling account of the Nobilissima suite is as good as any committed to disc recently...There is a palpable sense of delight in the playing of São Paulo SO, especially from the winds. Yet the string body has its moments too, for example in the central span's "Pastoral" section...The orchestra audibly had fun in the Symphonic Metamorphoses, where once again this newcomer holds its own on interpretative and sonic grounds.

BBC Music Magazine
Neschling and the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra relish the half-chance to swing, and this is a contented, light-on-its-feet performance. I can't help but feel that Mathis der Maler gets boggeed down by Neschling's tendency to self-consciouly deliberate over already sober music. But Nobilissima Visione is as good as any around; dramatically aware, orchestrally robust.
