Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, January 2015
By no means mainstream repertoire, Gounod's two completed symphonies nevertheless fully merit the finesse and joie de vivre that these performances ...bring to them...Throughout, Caetani conjures up lovely, affectionate and spirited playing of music that never fails to delight through its warmth, taste and vivacity.

This groundbreaking CPO recording features the world-premiere recording of the fragment of a Charles Gounod's third symphony. Conductor Oleg Caetani has the great good fortune of being so closely acquainted with the Gounod family that its members allowed him to use the manuscript of the third symphony for the recording. The present CD of course also includes Gounod's more familiar two symphonies. "In the end these three symphonies profit from the constant contrast between charm and verve, two special French traits that here blend together in a quite theatrical atmosphere." - Oleg Caetani

BBC Music Magazine, June 2015
Crisp, genial recordings of Gounod's two completed symphonies, both of which are charming, tuneful and elegant. Two fragments of a projected third symphony are the interesting bonus.
