Editorial Reviews

Philadelphia Inquirer - David Patrick Stearns
These pieces are layered with dark mysteries that make you want to hear them again and again. Also, the recording quality drawn from Seattle's Benaroya Hall is outstanding.
Buffalo News - Jeff Simon
[These symphonies] are soundscapes full of mass sonority, vigor and seriousness. The performances and recordings are brand new and superb.
South Florida Sun-Sentinel - Lawrence Johnson
[Schwarz's] astute direction draws playing of great dedication and incisiveness, making this a fine kickoff to what should be a rewarding series.
