Pulitzer Prize winner Joseph Schwantner is one of the most prominent composers in America today, renowned for his dramatic style and bewitchingly colorful orchestration. Morning’s Embrace depicts the intense brilliance of sunrise at his home in rural New Hampshire, and the ‘Ford Made in America’ commission Chasing Light…continues to explore the natural world in a work of eloquent expressiveness. A highly popular concert piece, the ‘fresh, engaging’ (Metro) and technically demanding Percussion Concerto is performed here by the acclaimed soloist for whom the work was written, Christopher Lamb.

Review By David Hurwitz,ClassicsToday.com,February 2012

the music is colorful, shimmering, occasionally melodic, and quite accessible. Schwantner is by any standard a very accomplished composer.

Review By Byzantion ,MusicWeb International,February 2012

Lamb, the Nashville Symphony and Guerrero give pretty much immaculate performances in all three works. The Nashvillers now have many recordings under their belt for Naxos, including perhaps a dozen in this generally superb ‘American Classics’ series—long may they continue.
