‘Of memorably high calibre, alertly and capably played and beautifully recorded … these three excellently engineered discs will more than repay careful and diligent listening’ (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)

‘Pople conveys all the joy and wonderment … and the London Festival Orchestra clearly share in his delight as they unfold the true genius of these extraordinary works. Very highly recommended’ (The Good CD Guide)

‘Ross Pople and the London Festival Orchestra provide crisp, lyrical, enthusiastic performances that capture the composer's humour’ (Classic FM Magazine)

‘I'd advise all those who don't know these remarkable works to acquire this complete set’ (CDReview)

‘The warmth and depth of the London Festival Orchestra's string section is amazing. Pople's interpretations lean toward the emotional if not quite the sentimental side. Joined together in Hyperion's clear and round acoustic, Pople and the LFO make Mendelssohn's string symphonies sound lush and lovely and altogether innocent’ (AllMusic, USA)» More
