Notes & Reviews:

Paul Dukas is famed for his brilliant, meticulously scored symphonic scherzo The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, first performed in 1897, which almost immediately entered the international repertoire. It was subsequently the focus of a ballet and later Walt Disney’s film Fantasia. Magical scoring is also a feature of La peri, a poéme dansé of great imaginative verve. The delightful, colorful Symphony in C was composed mid-way between these works. For this recording, manuscript sources for the three works were consulted, including the hitherto private proofs of the first edition of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, ensuring rigorously faithful performances.

The Guardian, 27th November 2014
Dukas's music sometimes comes close to the so-called impressionism of Debussy and Ravel. But while never neglecting those colouristic aspects, Tingaud's big-boned performances show how its stylistic roots reach back into a much wider range of 19th-century European models.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Tingaud's readings of the Sorcerer's Apprentice and the symphony are both well thought-out. Even in such a short, well-known piece as the former, he clarifies the connective thread between its motives. This reading of the great C-major Symphony is first-rate, and the slow movement is especially well done. Scholar Harry Halbreich regarded it as a tribute to the slow movement in Robert Schumann's supreme Symphony 2, also in C. The superior element is the ballet La Peri

Gramophone Magazine, January 2015
A warm welcome to this clear-headed and uncommonly sensitive account under Jean-Luc Tingaud. Not only does the Frenchman secure a commendably polished and infectiously enthusiastic response from the RTE National SO..., he shapes tihs glorious msuic with pleasing character, flexibility and authority.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2015
It is clearly a labour of love for conductor Jean-Luc Tingaud. He has not only polished the playing of the RTE National Symphony Orchestra to a beguiling level of Gallic sparkle, but also consulted manuscript sources for all three works...in Tingaud's hands, there is plenty of space for the delicate finesses of Dukas's orchestration.

MusicWeb International, February 2015
There are sumptuous passages of great beauty - sun-drenched and languid sounds with stunning orchestration... this is most movingly presented with a true cantabile tone and a real sense of longing. Listeners who enjoy rich, harmonic romantic scoring will be at home here.
