Review By Jeremy Nicholas,Classic CD,May 2000

…the large force gambols through these symphonic arrangements with great spirit…

Review By Andrew Druckenbrod,Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,July 2003

Called the ‘Creole Chopin,’ this 19th-century composer had a fascinating penchant for writing catchy and colorful pieces.

Review By Joseph Horowitz,The New York Times,July 2001

…we can newly appreciate the best American composer of the period and a third New World original: Louis Moreau Gottschalk.

Here, Naxos has furnished the premiere recording of Gottschalk’s explosive orchestral show-stopper, ‘Night in the Tropics’ (1859), in something like its original version, with pulsating Cuban percussion and brigades of gyrating brass. Richard Rosenberg leads the Hot Springs Music Festival Orchestra in a performance whose ‘Festa Criolla’ rattles the roof…This is mandatory American repertory.
