Notes & Reviews:

"...the distillation of the score [of the Doctor Atomic Symphony]...creates its own unique impact...this powerful score creates its own dramatic imagery...the real find is the second half of this CD. Guide to Strange Places...is an absorbing and somewhat unsettling trip...A great vote of thanks is due to Nonesuch for making these performances available...The engineering on this disc is first-rate...The orchestra surmounts the considerable technical challenges of the works with elan, matching the excellent Netherlands Philharmonic in the DVD recording of the opera for expressiveness and surpassing them in precision. The only complaint is the short playing time. That criticism aside, this release is warmly recommended." - Fanfare
