Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Ondine is pleased to announce the first release of an Enescu cycle with the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of artistic director Hannu Lintu. George Enescu is Romania's most important composer - and one of the most neglected composers of the 20th century. This release will be the first of an Enescu cycle with Hannu Lintu.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
Ondine's engineering is probably the best available for this work. If the perspective is a little distant, it's also comfortable.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2012
There are other good versions of this sumptuous work [the Second Symphony]...but this new Finnish account is at least their equal in impetus and recorded sound...Lintu and his players sympathetically expound [the Chamber Symphony], at once elegiac and exploratory...At once cosmopolitan and nostalgically Romanian, this is a little masterpiece.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2012
The Second Symphony is] expressively elusive, for sure, and in style somewhat backward-looking, but find its scoring nicely judged and not at all congested. The Tampere players seem to relish repertoire that sounds both familiar and unfamiliar. Hannu Lintu directs sympathetic performances.
