"If you are satisfied with performances that are lucid, imaginative, thoughtful and unselfconscious then you will be very happy with Martinon. He has a special understanding of this - and allied - repertoire and his clarity and care in balance and dynamics are merely two of his great virtues in Debussy conducting. That's why these performances exist in multiple competing editions - and long may they continue to do so." (MusicWeb on the Debussy recordings)

"these much-lauded performances deserve the highest possible recommendation. Ravel was, of course, a stunning orchestrator...the result is magical. His textural awareness is matched by an equally natural sense of pacing, and the orchestra (not one of the world's great ones) gives him 100 percent in music that it clearly knows and loves. A classic." ClassicsToday on the Ravel
