Notes & Reviews:

"...Thomas's fine "Sun Treader" has since been matched by Dohnanyi and his Cleveland Orchestra, but his elegant account of the Piston Symphony still reighs supreme. I usually find that a repeat of an earlier CD sounds identical to its predecessor, despite the continuous hype about new processing techniques, but this time I think DG has actually improved the sound quality... I'm enjoying the piece more than ever before." -North, Fanfare
