Press review

This is a terrific disc by a master symphonist - expertly performed and recorded. Highly recommended.
Ronald Legum, Audiophile Audition, November 22, 2006

(The Book of Visions) packs an emotional punch of rare intensity (...). The symphony, too, receives a biting performance, one that captures its grotesquerie as much as its pathos.
Matthew Rye, The Telegraph, Classical CDs of the week, February 25, 2006

This is a stunning disc. (...) The performances (...) are all that anyone could ask, and the sonics, whether in stereo or multichannel formats, are fully up to the quality of the interpretations. A knockout, not to be missed!

David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com, February 2005, Artistic Quality 10 / Sound Quality 10
