Notes & Reviews:

The ensemble Les Jacobins originated with the desire to explore the rich but little-known repertoire associated with the French Revolution. The group is comprised of Mathieu Lussier in collaboration with Canadian and international wind players. This exploration of the music of Étienne-Nicolas Méhul is the ensemble's second CD on the ATMA label.

MusicWeb International, 24th May 2013
Only occasionally did I wish for the greater variety of the full orchestrations...but the actual sounds of the instruments are delightfully pungent and varied. The players have to work hard when they lack the string foundation of the original versions but they phrase with much character and exemplary technique.
