Notes & Reviews:
"...It is post-Mahlerian above all in its scale (two huge outer movements 25 and 27 minutes long respectively flanking a much shorter central scherzo)...We begin to realise that the whole work is a vast drama in one act, not three, with a triumphant climax proceeding quite logically from all the conflict that has preceded it. Indeed Krenek was very proud of the fact that such a very dissonant climax should be at the same time so gleamingly radiant..." ***** -Oliver, Classic CD
