'This England' is the follow-up to 'Music for a Time of War', released earlier this year and features compositions by Edward Elgar, Ralph Vaughan-Williams and Benjamin Britten.

Critical Praise for 'Music for a Time of War':

"Kalmar leads deeply affecting readings of three 20th-century works with connections to wartime, and pacifist implications: John Adams’s The Wound-Dresser, Benjamin Britten’s Sinfonia da Requiem, and Ralph Vaughan Williams’s Symphony No. 4. Charles Ives’s The Unanswered Question opens the CD."  Andrew Quint, Fanfare

"Let us hope Pentatone will continue to record this excellent American orchestra." Robert Benson,

"Everyone else on the planet has already praised Music for a Time of War, from Carlos Kalmar and the Oregon Symphony (PentaTone Classics PTC 5186 393), to the skies, so I had better get in line. It is first-rate music-making, and first-rate engineering to boot."  Lawrence Schenbeck, PS Tracks

"Throughout the disc, Kalmar and the Oregon Symphony prove they can easily stand alongside the world’s great orchestras. Their sound is powerful and engaging, their technique is polished and effortless, and the intricate control of balance makes listening quite enjoyable."  Mike D. Brownell,
