Penguin Guide, January 2009

The Naxos performances, recorded in Faro, convey the sunny high spirits of the pieces and also bring four other rarities that few readers are unlikely to know. Good playing and recording.

Kate Bolton
BBC Music Magazine, December 2003

"There is certainly no lack of spirit in these performances by the Algarve Orchestra: the Arriaga overture is thrown off with infectious vitality, while his symphony and some of the other weightier pieces are played with great expressive intensity."

Stanley Sadie
Gramophone, December 2003

"The performance by this Portuguese group admirably catches its passion, in the fiery first movement and the agitated, nervy finale, and also in the Schubertian warmth of the Andante...Alvaro Cassuto directs alert performances from the Algarve orchestra that do the music ample justice."
