“infectious, bracing and idealistic by turns, the results are both lively and heartfelt.” BBCMusic Magazine, June 2010

“With a work as episodic as the Manfred Symphony, particularly in the long first movement, there is much to be said for a live recording, with dramatic tension more readily sustained. Vladimir Jurowski, the LPO's brilliant young principal conductor, directs a powerful performance in which the tension never flags. Recorded live, the sound is clear and well balanced…. a strong recommendation at mid- price and a welcome addition to the orchestra's own label.”
