Notes & Reviews:

The Onyx début of distinguished violinist and conductor Augustin Dumay focuses on the music of Camille Saint-Saëns. The composer's popular first Cello Concerto is coupled with his superb but neglected Symphony No.1 and the late and rare double concerto for cello and violin entitled La Muse et le Poète. Dumay, music director of Japan's Kansai Philharmonic Orchestra, is joined by cellist Pavel Gomziakov for this unusual and fascinating program.

[The Symphony is] given a polished performance here under Augustin Dumay, reveal[ing] a composer of staggering self-confidence and adventurousness.

Classical Music, 30th June 2012
Warm, affectionate performances from this relatively new Japanese orchestra...Sachio Fujioka shows himself in La Muse et le Poete to be the more interesting conductor.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2012
There is plenty of personality to Gomziakov's playing and the orchestra is deft and colourful.

BBC Music Magazine, October 2012
Dumay makes a convincing case for the First Symphony and sympathetically supports Gomziakov's lively account of the Cello Concerto, with some delicate poetry in the slow movement.

MusicWeb International, 25th October 2012
A fine CD, ideally suited to the recollection of summer past.
