Nicolas Couton – Press CD Reviews
(in original French and edited English transliteration)

La qualité supérieure de cette musique injustement oubliée est égalée par la finesse et la conviction de la direction du jeune chef Nicolas Couton aux commandes de l’orchestre de la capitale bulgare. On ne saurait espérer meilleure lecture pour un répertoire qui mérite toute notre attention, et ce dans les plus parfaites conditions. C’est ce que Timpani offre à Henri Rabaud. Bravo et merci!
