"Yves Abel understands exactly the nature of the fine and transparent Gubaidulina Cello Concerto and displayed his ability to articulate the overall structure...The orchestra was there, wide awake and obviously highly motivated."
Michael Stenger, Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung, 29 January 2005

"The chief asset of the set is the conducting of Yves Abel, whose finely controlled yet flexible reading draws from Massenet’s orchestral textures their full expressive power."
George Loomis
