Review By StarTribune,May 2003

Dennis Russell Davies, former music director of the St Paul Chamber Orchestra and a longtime Hovhaness advocate, conducts a fine performance of the concerto with the Seattle Symphony and Janos Starker as soloist, part of Naxos’ distinguished American Classics series, and the concerto’s first recording. From the start—a sweet, lonely sounding tune the cello shares with the solo flute—all the way to the ruminative final movement, Davies and Starker deliver the music’s nobility and its pungent lyricism.
