American Record Guide, May/June 2014
It sounds very good. Conductor Robert Meunier is to be commended for holding volume down most of the time. This group seems to operate in a comfort zone where tone qualities are natural and blended, and intonation is very good. Soloists sound comfortable, too. These fine qualities go far; lots of pieces will sound very good with these attributes.
