Notes & Reviews:

"The largely self-taught Creston's best works--including these symphonies--are a strong argument that 'modern' music can be immediately appealing...Kuchar digs in to produce lively readings with clear textures, solid tempos, strong line, and a snap to the rhythms. The Ukrainian orchestra is quite good...This collection is a must-have for lovers ofCreston and of the American music of his era..." -Hecht, ARG
