Notes & Reviews:

"Without making extravagant claims for Gardner's importance, I have to say that his symphony and, especially, his piano concerto are consistently engaging and satisfying. There are no dull or weak spots to spoil my enjoyment of either, and I'm grateful for this chance to discover them - and to the performers, especially Peter Donahoe, who plays the socks off the concerto. Sonics are clear and strong. I'll return to this many times; it is sure to please listeners looking to broaden their view of modern-but-mainstream symphonic music." -American Record Guide
