Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone
For Varese, Ameriques was not just a change in direction, but a new beginning: the Americas, signifying... new worlds on earth, in the sky or in the minds of men. Today, its very European origins, - from the Debussyan opening to the Stravinskian close - are its most immediate feature. Despite these influences, Ameriques remains a magnificent leap into the future' its explosive final minuets perhaps even surpassing The Rite in sheer power and energy.
