Notes & Reviews:

"Overall, this is a fascinating package, increasing our knowledge of a generation of Austro-German symphonists that included Hessenberg, Krenek, and Wellesz. Performances and conducting all sound committed and then some. That the recordings cover a broad time span shouldn't deter anyone. Even the oldest, Symphony 4, from a 1950 concert performance, has quite listenable sound with negligible background noise. The others are still completely acceptable to today's audiophiles."-American Record Guide
