Notes & Reviews:

"Pierre Boulez's single disc [of the music of Varese] concentrates on the two orchestral works that Varese wrote in the years after he emigrated to the United States in 1915, 'Ameriques' and 'Arcana.' Boulez is totally in his element in music like this, observing every teeming detail, controlling the massive up-wellings of sound with maximum assurance, and in the Chicago Symphony he has an orchestra that has all the virtuosity and panache to deliver it at maximum voltage." ***** BBC
