Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
"...Sowerby's slower, introspective passages have an impressionist flavor and an atmosphere reminiscent of Delius....Freeman conducts a new Czech orchestra, founded in the early 90s....Readers who like Sowerby the organist may want to get to know Sowerby the symphonist."
-- American Record Guide (11-12/97, pp.202-03)

"Prairie has an Americana atmosphere and open-spaces lyricism inline with the Copland and Harris scores of the 30s and 40s. Leo Sowerby's pieces are a worthy addition to any collection favoring composers of this era. Impressionistic tone painting enhances From the Northland and sometimes brings to mind the quieter passages in Respighi. These works were once only available on
Read more mono and terrible 'enhanced-to-simulate-stereo' LPs. We are at last fortunate to have very good modern stereo performances by Paul Freeman and the Czech National Symphony Orchestra.
