Spohr: Symphonies Nos. 8 & 10

“These are clear, beautifully judged performances, and Shelley and his orchestra plead every case for these works, from the portentous opening Adagio of the Eighth Symphony, to its fleet-footed Trio...you'll find no better performances than these: expertly judged and well argued by Shelley and his team. Revealing and worth exploring.” --Classic FM Magazine, March 2011 ****

“These performances - crisp, clear and affectionate - are well recorded and make for pleasing listening, not least Spohr's symphonic swan-song...Anyone new to Spohr's symphonies would do well to start here.” --International Record Review, January 2011

“there are attractive and characteristic touches [in the Tenth], and there is something affecting about how the old Romantic sensationalist turned at the end for sustenance back to Haydn...The recording ir clear and lucid, and does justice to the excellent Overture” --Gramophone Magazine, March 2011
