Notes & Reviews:

"Here is a disc that contains two winning works, and at the same time raises important issues about the nature and future of programming for the American orchestra...I must make particular mention of David Alan Miller and the Albany Symphony, whose sound is confident and full, for the commitment to new work and risk that they evidence. I also think a special commendation needs to go to Albany Records, which with this recording and several recent releases with the Cleveland Chamber Orchestra is beginning to fill a critical gap in new American music. For a while it seemed that most American orchestras (except Seattle) were off limits to recorded American music, and the only alternative was budget recording with Eastern European orchestras. Now Albany seems to be taking up the standard, with American ensembles playing our own music. Bravo! May the CCO continue to enlarge the chamber orchestra discography, and the Albany Symphony to the same for the orchestral repertoire." - Robert Carl, Fanfare
