Review By Geoffrey Norris,The Daily Telegraph (Australia),April 2000

"The two symphonies recorded here find Antheil forthright in his language, while using a more conventional orchestra [than with his ballets] and absorbing styles that the ear instantly associates with composers of 20th-century Russia. The Sixth Symphony (1947-8) has resonances of both Shostakovich and Prokofiev, but with distinctively American inflections as references to the Battle Hymn of the Republic. Propulsive and invigorating, Antheil's music merits the excellent, rhythmically assertive performance the Ukraine orchestra gives it."
