Conductor Deneve draws musical opulence from the orchestra, a shimmering gleam, powerful outbursts. Burden’s Nurse is as opulent as the orchestra. Hers is mega-sound, not just robust but beautiful, cunningly used to create effects with the text. © 2014 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Robert Benson, March 2013

The cast in this performance is superb throughout…A real star here is Stéphane Denéve…He extracts every bit of the luxurious score’s beauty, and the orchestra responds magnificently. Video and audio are state-of-the-art. © 2013 Read complete review
