Notes & Reviews:

This collection of overtures, ballet music and concert pieces, each with its own unique orchestral color, showcases Jules Massenet 's overlooked orchestral work. The Orchestre de la Suisse Romande is conducted by its Music and Artistic Director, Neeme Järvi. Also featured here are a number of works involving solo cello, performed here by Truls Mørk. He shines a light on Massenet's little-known Fantaisie for cello and orchestra, a fine piece rarely heard on disc or in the concert hall.

Financial Times, 24th May 2014
True to form, JSrvi has uncovere.d a collection of minor works by a well-known composer and injected enough sparkle into them to make for hugely enjoyable listening...JSrvi is in his element, and his Geneva orchestra responds with spirit and style.

BBC Music Magazine, July 2014
Of the three more substantial items, the two most familiar [Le Cid and the Scenes pittoresques]...are played by Neeme Jarvi and his Swiss orchestra with infectious panache and finesse.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2014
From the moment the curtain rises on the ballet suite from Le Cid you can sense the roar of the greasepaint and the smell of the crowd as the Suisse Romande Orchestra snap into the opening chords...A CD to warm the heart and lift the spirits.
