Notes & Reviews:

"This, the first release in Naxos's "American Classics" series that I have encountered, is a spectacular achievement in every respect. William Schuman was not merely, as Jose Serebrier remarks, "one of the greatest American symphonists," but in my opinion the greatest of them all... So we start with the prospect of excellent music. Then, working hand in glove, the Bournemouth Symphony... have created a fresco of stunningly vivid sound..." -Jacobson, Fanfare
