'Once again Chandos has done the orchestra and conductor proud in a recorded sound of a special brilliance and transparency.'
'There are imitations of Paradiso, too, in the passages of more cosseting, spiritual aspiration, Gianadndrea Noseda drawing his sizeable forces into a tableau that is full of incident, whether serenely contemplative or buffeted by the whirlwinds of eternal damnation.'
'The fifth volume in Gianandrea Noseda’s authoritative cycle with the BBC Philharmonic, this is also the most technically and interpretively exacting programme. Textural precision is foremost in ‘Deux Légendes’, with an exhilarating wash of low brass, low woodwind and frenzied strings in ‘St Francois de paule marchant sur les flots’. Most impressive, however, is Nodesda’s navigation of the bombastic colourations of ‘Eine symphonie zu dantes Divina Comdedia’'
'This is volume 5 of the series, which has been a real voyage of discovery for me.'
