Lawrence Hansen
American Record Guide, July 2011

The conductor is still fairly young (born 1975), so perhaps he’s still in touch with the hyperintense emotions of early youth to bring fervor and vitality to the symphony without exaggeration. Mostly, his account is direct and straightforward, not feverish and wild but hardly sluggish. BIS’s SACD sonics are clear and unconstricted; the miking is a bit close, but that helps make sure the listener doesn’t miss any details of Berlioz’s orchestration.
