All Music Guide - James Leonard
One of the greater successes in Robert Craft's series of Naxos re-releases of his MusicMaster and Koch Stravinsky recordings is this 2009 disc joining the "Symphony in C" and the "Symphony in Three Movements," with his frisky recording of the "Octet for Wind Instruments" with the Twentieth Century Classics Ensemble and his propulsive recording of the "Dumbarton Oaks Concerto."

The "Dumbarton Oaks" is bright and bouncy with a sly wit and a driving beat. But best of all is the performance of the "Octet."
