Notes & Reviews:

This edition not only represents an invaluable addition to the catalogue but also offers top-quality interpretations of Milhaud's moving and profound symphonic music. FonoForum wrote: "Everything sounds finely honed, lush, precise, and splendid! Francis once again proves to be a conductor of supreme competence, of special feeling, and delightfully unrelenting in details." This set was also winner of the Cannes Classical Award 2000 for "Best Orchestral CD Premiere".
