Notes & Reviews:

Masterfully recorded and mastered by Grammy-winning SoundMirror, this top-notch ensemble conducted by Gregory Wolynec specializes in the programming of masterworks past and present. The ensemble gave its debut in Fall 2008 with Schoenberg's milestone Chamber Symphony, Op. 9 and is comprised of the talented faculty of Austin Peay State University and professional musicians.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
The Summit disc has the Gateway Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Gregory Wolynec and composed of first-rate players from the Austin-Peay University faculty and the Nashville area. Their performances of three major 20th Century chamber symphonies are bold, powerful, American - and quite unusual for works that are usually handled with European suaveness. Wolynec maintains his approach almost to an extreme; and the close recording, with dominant winds and brass, matches the performances. The Enesco is better with Lintu's European grace and blend, but the Wolynec has its merits, especially the trumpet playing.
