Reviews

‘At every stage the music is presented with eagerness and excitement, the muscular counterpoint has great intensity and you may well hear details you have not heard before… The playing is excellent, as indeed is the recording. Well worth hearing, and studying.’ Musical Times, June 1971 (No. 5)

‘A young Belgian conductor of great talent … Huybrechts has obviously prepared the score with great thought and conscientiousness… He does not use the music as a vehicle for his own self-projection… The two soloists are both excellent.’ Gramophone, March 1975 (No. 3)
