Notes & Reviews:

"This is the single most exciting disc I have ever recorded. The torch is lit by Hanson, and burns with Prokofiev, Nielsen, Respishi and Shostakovich, until it explodes with Jon Leif's 'Hekla' - a recording of his musical depiction of a volcano which is the loudest piece of music ever written." -Leif Segerstam, Music Director of the Helsinki Philharmonic
