Notes & Reviews:

"Horwood's range of reference is very wide. The opening of the National Park Suite, with its stentorian trombones, might recall the stark nature music that opens Mahler's Third Symphony--not because Horwood is imitating, but because he understands what such gestures mean... Pianist Joseph Kubera plays with confident bravua, and throughout this program Ian Hobson and the Sinfonia Varsovia seem to be enjoying themselves in giving each work a 100 percent effort. Albany's sonics are typically excellent, revealing all of the music's color and impact in a warm, natural acoustic space. Collectors take note: this is 80 minutes of terrific music by a composer of real personality and style. Try it. I feel certain you'll want more." -Classics Today (10/10)
