Notes & Reviews:

"It was clever to couple 'The Planets' with its outsized orchestra, drama, humor, brilliance and mystery, with the Elgar 'Serenade', modestly scored for strings only. As complex and outspoken as 'The Planets' is, the 'Serenade' is unpretentious, simple, and has a glowing warmth. Except for an occasional heaviness and a slightly too slow middle movement, it is a welcome makeweight. Fine sonics." - Fox, ARG
