Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
"...the music to Holger Drachmann's romantic play, 'Gurre,'...[is] expertly laid out for the orchestra, its invention is pleasingly fresh....Halvorsen's scoring has great color. He has obviously studied his Berlioz as well as Svendsen." - International Record Review (4/2000, pp.31-32) - (4/2000, pp.31-32)
