Notes & Reviews:

van Gilse's Symphony No. 4 premiered Nov. 28, 1915, with the composer himself conducting the Concertgebouw Orchestra. After this great performance success his publisher printed a hundred scores (though van Gilse had to cover the costs). And so it was that his powerful and individual 4th symphony was not forgotten. In fact, it became one of his most performed works.

MusicWeb International, January 2013
On this evidence Van Gilse has a penchant for glowing radiance; drama comes to him more fitfully. This may be his weakness but for the listener in the right mood that is also his shining strength.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Emotionally, it's the most deeply felt music I've ever heard from this composer and is alone worth the price of the record. Van Gilse packs a world of tragedy into 11 minutes. The music must reflect his personal torments, including being on a Nazi watch list. The orchestral playing is skilled and Porcelijn's conducting is, as usual, first-rate.
