„Faced with such an enormous choice of recordings of the Beethoven concerto, this one at least has a unique selling point in new cadenzas composed for David Grimal by Brice Pauset. Although they remain within the bounds of propriety, that for the first movement is unusual in its inclusion at its mid-point of an orchestral role with solo piano. Otherwise the performance, taken from a Dijon concert in 2010, is a rewardingly fresh reading of the printed score. Maybe the central Larghetto is a little slow, but the whole account has an unhurried feel, and Grimal’s long lyric lines are shaped with beauty and much affection.“ –David Denton, theStrad

“This recording of the Seventh Symphony is not the result of the long experience of a conductor who has directed the work all his life, nor is it a sumptuous performance by a prestigious orchestra, nor even a demonstration of what the work should sound like on period instruments. Our aim was not to join the pantheon of great versions.

This recording is simply a memento of the first and only concert performance of this work given by the musicians of Les Dissonances after two days’ rehearsal. All of us feel intense joy whenever our respective paths bring us together for such wonderful moments of friendship and musical fraternity. May this recording bear witness to the unusual experiment in which we took part together…” –David Grimal
