Jerry Dubins
Fanfare, January 2013

…in comparing Newton’s rerelease to RCA’s original, there does seem to be a bit of an improvement in the sound…Take the Third Symphony, a work commissioned by Serge Koussevitzky for the Boston Symphony’s 50th anniversary. It opens with a driving martial onslaught, which, in this 2012 Newton pressing has greater solidity and force.

With the marginally improved sound on these Newton discs over their RCA originals, plus my slight preference for Janowski’s readings…I would definitely recommend this Newton rerelease. If you don’t know these Roussel works, you owe it to yourself to discover them, and the current offering is an economical way to do so. © 2013 Fanfare Read complete review
