Review By Repertoire,April 2000

"Autre bonne surprise, le CD consacré à Meredith Willson (1902-1984) que les amoureux de Broadway connaissent pour l'immense succès que fut 'The Music Man' que les cinéphiles saluent pour sa collaboration avec Charlie Chaplin à l'occasion du 'Dictateur.' Deux symphonies en forme d'hommage sont présentées ici, l'une en l'honneur de la ville de San Francisco, et l'autre en référence aux Pères missionnaires de Californie. Naturellement, les deux oeuvres suivent un programme très clair, mais évitent heureusement le piège de la musique bêtement descriptive."


Review By John Tyler Tuttle,Le Monde de la Musique,March 2000

"Les intrépretations sont satisfaisantes, les divers chefs faisant preuve d'un enthousiasme admirable."

"The interpretations are satisfactory, the various conductors showing an admirable enthusiasm."
