Notes & Reviews:

On his third recording for Onyx, Augustin Dumay is featured both as conductor and violin soloist. The disc pairs the deliciously good-natured Serenade No.1 by Brahms, an early work full of great tunes, with early Beethoven - his popular Romances for violin and orchestra - one of which may have been the second movement to his unfinished C major concerto WoO5 of the mid-1790s. Dumay shines in both roles, and the Kansai Philharmonic once again demonstrates their world-class skills and burnished tone.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2014
A robust performance of Brahms's warm-hearted First Serenade. Beethoven's Romances make a satisfying counterpart, the solo parts lovingly played by Dumay.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2014
It's clear that Augustin Dumay has a close rapport with his Japanese orchestra. Throughout the Serenade the players shape the music in the most convincing way, and to maximum expressive effect...Dumay has in abundance the presence and tone to communicate the lyrical qualities ot the two Romances.

MusicWeb International, 28th January 2014
These performances are captured in excellent, clear sound. Presentation is slightly laid back, and the soundstage is both wide and deep. For works that don't generate a tremendous amount of bass power, bass extension is nonetheless quite deep and aurally satisfying.
