Notes & Reviews:
The Guardian, November 2012
Van Immerseel's approach can seem a bit too deliberate; there's something ponderous about Prélude à l'Après-Midi...it's the orchestral Images that gains most from the brighter, rawer colours of this performance, with the myriad subtleties of Debussy's scoring more beguiling than ever.
The Independent on Sunday, 25th November 2012
Woodwind, brass and strings are highly individuated: the solo flute is blanched in tone, the trombones broad and warm. For sound alone, it is a fascinating experiment, though van Immerseel's tempi are somewhat indulgent.
