Notes & Reviews:

The second CD in Pentatone's dance music series lets you savor the vibrant, famous compositions from German-speaking countries, including works by Richard Strauss, Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Franz Schreker. Connected by the power of music, inspired by the fin de siècle, this set glorifies the influential ballet/theatre/opera interwar period. The Orchestre de la Suisse Romande is led by conductor Kazuki Yamada, the orchestra's Principal Guest Conductor since June 2010.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2014
[Yamada] draws playing of felicitous polish, captivating flexibility and winning application throughout what is a most imaginative, distinctly moreish programme; indeed, on first acquaintance, I listened to the whole disc twice for sheer pleasure!

James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, 1st December 2014
Kazuki Yamada and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande are delightfully playful in the pizzicato Polka that opens this short suite based on themes by Johann Strauss II. An incredibly jolly performance that had me smiling from beginning to end!

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The orchestra is at its best in the music of that other Strauss, performing the 'Dance of the Seven Veils' from Salome with a beautifully sensuous sound. It closes the program with the First Sequence of Waltzes from Der Rosenkavalier, a reading that's remarkable for its stylish elegance.
