Notes & Reviews:

"Though Ned Rorem has long been considered America's finest living composer of art songs, his orchestral scores have never gotten their due. So on the cusp of his 80th birthday, it's a special pleasure to hear this Naxos survey." **** - Detroit Free Press

"This stuff is simply gorgeous. Ned Rorem's symphonies are shot through with long, lyrical melodies that some observers might relate to his gifts as a songwriter, but strike me as more likely inspired by the "Sunrise" sequence from Ravel's Daphnis et Chloë--music so strikingly lovely that the beauty it describes can only exist in the world of fantasy and make-believe... As a birthday gift to the composer in this, his 80th year, I can't imagine a finer gift, and I hope that he gets as much pleasure from it as he has given me--and will give to you as well." -Classics Today (10/10)
