Notes & Reviews:

Polish-born Tansman enjoyed considerable international success during his long and distinguished career as composer, pianist and conductor, contributing to almost every musical genre. He was a close friend of Ravel, Stravinksy and Milhaud, and the list of his dedicatees reads like a who's who of twentieth-century music. Yet, since his death the music of Tansman has been largely neglected and is only now beginning to receive renewed attention. Essentially a neo-classicist, Tansman revealed an instinctive romanticism in his Scriabinesque, chromatic harmony which bordered at times on the atonal.

Gramophone Magazine
... Oleg Caetani and his Melbourne forces are fervent advocates of Tansman, and the recordings are excellent.

International Record Review
After hearing this spectacularly engineered new SA-CD, I really do believe that Alexandre Tansman's time has come... there's no need to hesitate over Oleg Caetani's performances
