Notes & Reviews:

"The Chamber Orchestra of Europe... boasts one of the finest string sections in the business. Harnoncourt, moving ever further from his Baroque/Classical roots, proves himself a champion of these two mid-20th-century masterpieces, driving his players to extremes of expression and energy." ***** - Matthew Rye, BBC Music Magazine
