Notes & Reviews:

Neeme Järvi and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande's exploration of 19th century French orchestral works continues with a third release spotlighting the opera composer Jacques Offenbach whose sense of satire was evident in his operattas and most famously authored the phantasmagoric Les Contes d'Hoffmann (The Tales of Hoffmann) among other full length operas. Recorded in Super Audio, these overtures hint at the depth and imagination of Offenbach's sensibilities whose works exemplified the zeitgeist of his time.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2015
It has a compulsively listenable range of colour and orchestral effects. These are utterly sensible and musical performances... the collection makes for entertaining listening.
