Notes & Reviews:

Captured live at acclaimed concerts in Paris - he conducts the superb Chamber Orchestra of Europe, one of the world's preeminent chamber orchestras.

This set is Yannick Nézet-Séguin's first recording of a complete symphony cycle.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2014
These enormously invigorating and brilliantly executed performances...quash once and for all the old age that Schumann's Symphonies are deficient in their treatment of the orchestra...NTzet-STguin has an instinctive grasp of Schumann's fluid lyrical melodic style, responding with great sensitivity to those moments in the musical line where the harmony is at its most intense.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2014
NTzet-STguin here offers true 'Schumann-lite' in performances that pay close attention to detail but don't stint on personality...[His] response to Schumann's sound strategies are most revealing in the Rhenish....a heavyweight contender in a far from uncrowded corner of the market.

Sunday Times, 8th June 2014
These freshly conceived, youthful and vigorous accounts, banishing all hints of the portentousness of the old German school: the works are spring-cleaned.

Financial Times, 21st June 2014
NTzet-STguin and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe drive the music hard - sometimes almost staccato-like - in the modern, period-inflected style...strait-laced Schumann, impeccably played.
