Notes & Reviews:

"...James dePreist is under no illusions, it seems, for he throws aside every inhibition and lets fly. To be sure, he doesn't stint on mystery in the reflective moments either (his orchestra knows how to play pianissimo), but as the first movement boils we find ourselves overwhelmed as one brass climax is outdone by another..." -Trezise, Classic CD
