Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2016
In a crowded market, this pair of discs of Mozart's last three symphonies strands out, and will, I imagine, prove controversial... the opening bars of the Jupiter (No. 41) positively bark at you, and the harsh dissonances in the introduction to No. 39 have never before been as harsh as this. On the other hand, Tognetti slows down, regularly, before a lyrical subject and in general lets tempos ebb and flow in an unfashionable way.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2016
Not surprisingly, perhaps, his interpretations are rather raucous themselves, with urgent tempi, sinewy sonorities and an aggressively muscular approach to phrasing and articulation... the ACO play with gusto and admirable virtuosity.

The Guardian, 12th October 2016
The approach is typically large-scale and imposing: this 21st-century fusion of modern instruments with period ideas creates a fullness of sound that sometimes belies the fact that it is a chamber orchestra...but which is always combined with a transparency and litheness that make it constantly engaging and worthwhile.
