The Ulster Orchestra, Thierry Fischer.
There is absolutely nothing you could dislike about this composer. He so expertly puts the notes together, which all sounds natural, like it is unavoidable. He shapes his melodies so lovingly, and imbues the music with such ethereal moods. He is out to please and no one better as him suited for this task. Just take the lovingly shaped "Andante " from his Symphony in G major. All what is to come after that is in the same mould. Gracefully, flowing as easily as a downhill stream. The sheer inventiveness, squeezing the last ounce of creativity out of his pen, the amazing clarity in the scores, the virility of the melodies, soft grained but thrillingly evocative, coupled to an impeccable control of orchestral discipline, it can not be other as highly recommendable.
State of the Art sound.
