"... These are charming works, nevertheless, every bit the equal of many of Mozart’s youthful works and allowing a greater degree of lyricism than brother Joseph would admit in his symphonies."

"The Brown University Orchestra play through with commited expression and clockwork (pun intended) precision. And, as a matter of fact, conductor Paul Phillips is the author of A Clockwork Counterpoint: The Music and Literature of Anthony Burgess, so who better than an expert on the subject to deliver a faithful and authoritative account."

"...the Brown players are well ahead of some American university orchestras who have appeared on discs of obscure music in recent years, and Phillips—apart from his academic work on Burgess both as writer and composer—is also the director of orchestras at the university, so he knows how to get the best from his students. There is obviously no competition on disc for most of this music, so it is good that the results here are so good."

" ... This disc starts with Mr WS, a jaunty mock-Tudor ballet suite nodding to Walton’s Shakespearian music, and the similarly Waltonesque Marche pour une Révolution, both dispatched with spirit if not ideal refinement by Phillips’s student orchestra; but keep listening and a more interesting voice emerges in Mr Burgess’s Almanack, a sequence of 14 modernist-inflected short movements for chamber ensemble written in 1987."   ***

"...the recording is beautifully executed. The choice of pieces provides a larger picture of Burgess the composer. Phillips, with the excellent Brown University Orchestra, illuminates Burgess’s musical choices. Burgess’s command of the orchestra is impressive and confident, and the scope of these works shows two of his strongest talents: tunes and orchestration."

"This is some of the best music of its kind that I have heard, …Reto Kuppel is an ideal interpreter with technique to burn, and the performances are very well recorded."

"The German Reto Kuppel …  is superbly attuned to the genre… All the necessary brilliance and incisive attack is there as you would expect, but also the same breadth and power of tone which was, from all accounts, part of what made Vieuxtemps’s own playing so remarkable."

"Vicente Coves is forthright and colorful…as are the musicians of the Málaga Philharmonic under Vicente’s brother Manuel. Torroba was a genial composer, with no major statements to make but vibrant traditions to draw upon. This release, along with those to come in the series, should make for an attractive set."

...[Pepe Romero’s] formidable technique as well as his sense of rhythm and sensitive musicianship should win over even listeners with little or no knowledge of or interest in this kind of music. The Málaga Philharmonic Orchestra…turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The recording is excellent… Constantly inspired and inspirational music lovingly performed by devoted musician: this should be a source of delight for many listeners… "

"... The performances are all that you would expect with Pepe Romero as soloist in two of the works with the Málaga Symphony Orchestra and Manuel Coves, better than expectations, with Vicente Coves in the other pieces."
