"The repertoire, of some of the most famous orchestral pieces by Debussy, Ravel, Roussel, and Ibert, sounds wonderfully fresh, played with an idiomatic finesse which would be looked for in vain nowadays."
- Classic Music MDC

"Gaubert's hyper-romantic Daphnis and Chloe is the sort of item that wins converts to old recordings... utterly charming" - American Record Guide
