Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Worthy of a place alongside any of the acknowledged great symphonists of the 20th century. . . . Not to be missed." -- Ateê Orga, BBC Music Magazine

"It is clear that this symphonic cycle is going to be an event of major importance." -- Martin Anderson, CD Review

"The two symphonies on this disc (1 and 5) demonstrate that Frankel's neglect has been our loss." -- Michael Oliver, Gramophone
