Notes & Reviews:

"Willen treats the Fourth [Symphony] more as a symphonic poem than a symphony. His approach is soft-edged, impressionist, and blended. He digs into the music, uses rubato with unerring instinct, generates power through breadth rather than accents, and finds real mystery in the bass line between sections." - Hecht, American Record Guide
