Roger Hecht
American Record Guide, August 2000

"Bakels is cool, fast, spiky, and very objective. This is a modern approach whose mechanical but animated quality links the Sixth to the iciness of the Sinfonia Antarctica. The Epilogue seems awkward, with solo instruments in high relief, but the impression fits what came before: a frozen wasteland rather than the remains of a nuclear holocaust. Very Interesting."

Classic CD

"Kees Bakels's tranquil Pastoral (No. 3) has beautifully sustained tension and brings lovely playing from soloists in the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra"


"Quite an impressive, very competitive performance and recording"

Penguin Guide

"There is much lovely orchestral playing"
