Notes & Reviews:

"'Ode' turns out to be one of the most interesting ballets of its period. More an oratorio than a stage work, it is conceived as a sequence of short arias, recitatives, vocal duets, orchestral interludes and choruses setting the grandiose 'Evening meditation upon the Greatness of God' by the 18th-century Russia poet Lomonosov. There's a disarming spontaneity of invention and directness of style about 'Ode' that is particularly appealing." ***** - Erik Levi, BBC
