“strong in Mediterranean atmosphere, … La Mer has an underlying grip … concentrates on evocation at the opening and creates a real pianissimo, helped by the wide dynamic range of the recording … overall there is plenty of excitement, with the LSO virtuosity in the finale matched by the rich-toned ardour of the strings when they rise to the emotional peak of Jeux de vagues … Fetes proceeds spectacularly, glittering in colour … not conventional readings but full of impulse and superbly recorded” (© Penguin Guide, 3 stars)
