Reviews

See review archive

“These performances present a strong case for the music, which should be popular with choruses searching for Americana to program.”

Bob Benson
Classical CD Review, 2005

“The choral and orchestral performances throughout this CD [Young America] are elegant, the music in its style and expressiveness, human, warm and sympathetic, giving song and voice to these poems.”

Robert Commanday
San Francisco Classical Voice, 2005

“The music has a kind of charming, late-Romantic appeal, spiced with some more modern harmonic touches.”

Joseph Stevenson
Classics Today, 2005
