Notes & Reviews:

The opulent and sensual expressiveness in these composers' works has long been obscured by more turbulent developments in music of the 20th century. One of Deems Taylor's most successful compositions, Through the Looking Glass celebrates Alice in Wonderland, each of its five sections corresponding to passages or episodes from this enchanting tale. Influenced by the German Romantics and French Impressionists, Charles Tomlinson Griffes' rich harmonic palette and orchestral colors can be heard in the Poem written for flutist Georges Barrère, the landscapes of the Three Tone Pictures and poetry of The White Peacock, while Kubla Khan and the Bacchanale share exotic oriental inspiration.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
In the other three works, all gentle impressionist gems, Falletta gets finely nuanced solos, especially from the winds. Her transparent textures are perfectly terraced, her seamless lines limpid yet sustained, and her flow is ideally flexible, especially in the Poem for flute an orchestra, where Carol Wincenc is far subtler than Scott Goff. In all three works Schwarz's recording is more frontal than impressionist. In The White Peacock the BPO bathes you in gorgeous transparent sound and seamless graceful swells. Both conductors serve up more than enough excellence.
