Review By Max Westler,Enjoy the Music,July 2013

If you don’t know these works, these thrilling, gorgeous-sounding performances will provide the perfect introduction. Those already addicted to Nielsen will also find much to enjoy here. Gilbert’s freshness and vitality will make you fall in love with these works all over again. I would…suggest that you be patient and wait for the remainder of Gilbert’s cycle to appear. Judging from this first installment, it promises to be something very special. © 2013 Enjoy the Music Read complete review
