Notes & Reviews:
Gramophone Magazine (Bizet)
Balance and recording are excellent ... Martinon's strings play their gorgeous melodies with equally gorgeous tone.
Gramophone Magazine (Fournier/Martinon)
Fournier is impassioned and eloquent [in the Lalo] ... expressive in the slow movement and rhythmic in the delightful Allegro presto dance section [... ] the Bruch is played with dignity and without undue emotionalism.
Gramophone Magazine (Zabaleta/Martinon)
The Ginastera Concerto is] brilliantly scored for the orchestra and also exploits the solo instrument more fully than do the other pieces; indeed the texture of the music is unfailingly varied and unfailingly attractive. This is an interesting program, played superbly by Zabaly and well by the ORTF Orchestra.
The Martinon Violin Concerto] is deeply impressive ... given its premiFre by Szerying in 1961, it is haunting, the work of a real composer of individuality. It is lyrical but impassioned, with a rich vein of fantasy, economical in its use of resources, rhtymically vital, and expertly written for the soloist ... Szeryng plays it superbly ... a most arresting new work in a first-class recording.
