Notes & Reviews:

"...The 'Flourish', written for Michael Tilson Thomas's first concert as Musical Director of the LSO, has lyrical substance as well as the appropriate 'occasional' brilliance...The Horn Concerto is a beautiful, allusive dream about all the worlds that the solo horn can evoke...it deserves to by widely heard...strongly recommended." -MEO, Editor's Choice, Gramophone
