Reviews

Musical Opinion

a very welcome and well-filled CD. [Two of the major works] are an only recording, making this collection extremely valuable for collectors and students of this composer. The Five Studies was, I believe, Paul Badura-Skoda’s first recording, so there is much of importance in this CD. Strongly recommended.

Gramophone

a fascinating and valuable collection… all very nicely transferred. Well worth investigating.

” —Rob Cowan
International Record Review

an excellent Milhaud anthology… an imaginative collection in superbly restored sound

” —Nigel Simeone
American Record Guide

This collection of less familiar pieces is welcome. There is much that is enjoyable… the compelling reason to purchase the disc is the Protée Suite [which] for sheer bacchic mayhem is unsurpassed. Divine Art is to be commended for their selection of works and the care taken with their restoration

Penguin Guide To Compact Discs

⭐️⭐️⭐️ (outstanding)

” —Ivan March
Classic Record Collector

a very welcome offering… splendidly vigorous performance of the Second Symphonic Suite… good notes by Stephen Sutton and Andrew Rose [restoration engineer] has done an excellent job.

” —Roger Nichols
MusicWeb

a disc packed full with a connoisseur’s selection of historic recordings. The no-nonsense sound shows the sort of attentive and skilled remastering that makes Divine Art’s vintage Sibelius symphonies disc such a refreshing experience. This is a distinctive entry in the Milhaud lists…more please, Divine Art.

I almost feel guilty in declaring this to be one of the finest and most interesting discs I have yet received for review
