Henk Guittart knows how to effortlessly prevail through his professionalism, musical integrity and ability to convince musicians of his ideas. The communication between the orchestra and soloist is optimal, the pleasure in music making is infectious. Guittart knows how to transform in the second part -the individual songs- the orchestra into an authentically sounding amusement orchestra.
Rotterdams Dagblad 19 March 1999

The cast is excellent, as is the playing of the purpose-built Siren Ensemble under Guittart.
