Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
American Record Guide (11-12/97, pp.196-97) - "...The Ethos Percussion Group...are really the stars of this production, and they shine...as brightly as any percussionists I've heard in this music....The album notes forthrightly admit that Mr. Spalding's arrangement of the Liszt for the same orchestral forces as the ballet...was purely a matter of convenience--to use the forces already assembled to record something to fill out the disc....This take on the `Hungarian Fantasy' is highly entertaining and exciting..."
