Notes & Reviews:

The Chandos series of works by Richard Wagner, performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Neeme Järvi, continues with a disc of early symphonies and later marches, and the overture to 'Rienzi'. Praise for earlier releases was resounding - It all sounds superb, and on SACD, better still.' BBC Music on CHSA 5092 'This is wonderful playing and sound... Järvi knows exactly what to do to make the music speak. The orchestra sounds better than I've ever heard them.' American Record Guide on CHSA 5077

BBC Music Magazine, May 2012 *****
If he had written nothing more, Wagner's Symphony in C would still have prefigured his extraordinary genius - but not its direction...It's still a pleasure, though, fresh and vigorous; Neeme Jarvi's fairly brisk reading, beautifully played by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, amply explains why Clara Schumann warned Robert he had a new rival.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2012
Jarvi and the RNSO don't skimp on the music's surging bombast and the Chandos sound has abundant character character: great depth of perspective and no loss of clarity.

International Record Review, May 2012
Jarvi gives a spirited if undemonstrative account of this veritable warhorse [the Rienzi overture], elsewhere securing an animated response from the Royal Scottish National Orchestra that serves the music admirably...Pleasureable and thought-provoking listening guaranteed.

Fanfare Magazine, September/October 2012
All of the works on this disc . . . If you're a Wagner fan, and your interest in his music extends beyond his operas, I can think of no reason for you not to be thrilled by this release. Neeme JSrvi, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and Chandos have teamed up countless times over the years to bring us many truly outstanding recordings, and this is another of them.
