Wonderful review for Kazuki Yamada and OSR



We are very proud to share this wonderful review of our release of Roussel - Bacchus & Ariane / Debussy - Six Épigraphes Antiques / Poulenc - Les Biches, performed by Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and conducted by Kazuki Yamada. Rising star Yamaday is appearing regularly with the greatest orchestra's of this time and has recently added this great album to his repertoire. According to the review, ''The charismatic young Japanese conductor Kazuki Yamada has already made an impressive series of recordings for PENTATONE with L'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande of music associated with the dance.''

The release features works by three different composers; ''All three works on this disc are appearing in the SACD format for the first time making this an especially welcome issue.''

''Finally in lighter vein, we have the delicious five-movement Suite from Poulenc's ballet 'Les Biches' written for Diaghilev's Ballet Russes and premiered in 1924. Yamada's exuberant performance enhanced by witty and pointed playing from the OSR does not disappoint.''

''The Polyhymnia engineering team working in the fine acoustic of Victoria Hall, Geneva in October 2015 have achieved an outstanding DSD recording with a beautifully judged balance between detail and generous hall ambience.''
 
''This outstanding release is enthusiastically recommended.''
