Notes & Reviews:

"The first movement of the Third Symphony revels in its unbridled rhythmic thrust, while Denève wrings every drop of bittersweet poignancy from the slow movement, capping it off with the most intense and powerful climax you will ever hope to hear. The remainder of the symphony, ebullient and sparkling, with the finale emerging seamlessly from the quiet ending of the scherzo, caps a performance that's just about perfect... This team looks set to become a major musical force, and a genuine star of the Naxos catalog. Keep it coming, please!" -Classics Today (10/10)
