CRITIC REVIEWS:

"Where Pierné excels – really does excel – is in L’Arlésienne, where the lovely melodies are so perfectly articulated that tears start to one’s eyes. Like Beecham, Pierné could make a slight piece sound profound through sheer magnitude of beauty, though not even Beecham can catch him here.”

- David Radcliffe, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, May/June, 2000



“Though hardly a towering figure, Gabriel Pierné (1863-1937) was a composer and conductor of great charm and distinction. Despite the limitations of 1927-28 electrical recording, he was not to be rushed – he spins Berlioz’ lyricism out more broadly than we are, perhaps, accustomed to today, and, while hardly lacking in excitement, his climaxes combine élan with dignity and articulate detail.”

- Adrian Corleonis, FANFARE, Sept/Oct., 1998
