SCHMITT Antoine et Cléopâtre Suites Nos. 1 and 2, Le Palais Hanté

“Falletta plays it straight—no need for gilding of any kind—and her Buffalonians respond with wonderfully nuanced playing. Quietly sensational Schmitt, superbly recorded; nothing short of a revelation.” --MusicWeb International, November 2015

“Conducted by JoAnn Falletta, the performances are admirably stylish, while the Buffalo Philharmonic boast nicely dexterous strings and woodwind.” --Gramophone Magazine, November 2015

“This is music high on imagery, poetic expression and with rivers of colour and description. The time spent with the six pieces passes quickly and rewardingly: terrific brass fanfares to open ‘Le Camp de Pompée’, for example, and the later night music is exotic and perfumed...recommended with enthusiasm.”, December 2015
