Reviews

‘Pelléas et Mélisande is Fauré’s finest set of incidental music, and Marriner catches very well its supple movement, its rise and fall of intensity. His performance of Masques et Bergamasques has similar virtues.’ Gramophone

‘Marriner and his players have an affectionate approach, with plenty of sensitivity in their shading and no lack of strength either, but all is accomplished at a tempo that has nothing over-insistent or pretentious about it.’ Gramophone
