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

'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
