Notes & Reviews:

The wide range of color of these pieces extends from Flourish with Fireworks to a potpourri from Higglety Pigglety Pop!, the Whitman Setting, Op. 25a for soprano and orchestra, and, finally, to the Horn Concerto... "a beautiful allusive dream about all the worlds that the solo horn can evoke". - Gramphone
