Notes & Reviews:

"This new CD has the first recording of 'Festive Overture', which Foerster wrote in 1907 for the opening of a theater in Kralovske Vinohrady. I found it hard to believe that this dates from almost 100 years ago because it is so lightweight and bombastic that it reminded me more of 'Star Wars'. It also has the first recording of 'My Youth', which is one of the first things that he wrote after moving to Vienna in 1903. It is filled with vigorous, confident themes and is very well written."-American Record Guide
