Calum MacDonald
BBC Music Magazine, April 2003

" [the Castile and Leon Symphony Orchestra] is an excellent band for which the music of Joaquin Turina is meat and drink. I confess a certain resistance to Turina... Yet when played with this much dash and colour and conviction, and so brightly and crisply recorded, such well-known works as the Danzas fantasticas and Procession del Rocio do seem to justify their inclusion in the canon of 'Spanish classics'... there's no denying that this is a very enjoyable disc, so well-played and recorded I wouldn't have complained if it had been a full-price release."

John Duane
Gramophone, April 2003

"Turina's skill and sensitivity in the art of orchestration shines throughout this programme, as does that of the Castilla y Leon Symphony Orchestra in extracting every good feature the music offers. The recording is clear, warm-sounding and with a believably spacious acoustic. There are other recordings of all these works, but none that brings them all together - or exceeds the quality of these performances. This is an outstanding issue."

Sound and Vision Magazine, February 2003

"The pieces are exquisitely atmospheric and conveyed vividly here by the Castillians under Max Bragado Darman. Worth investigating at the price."
