Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The two symphonies on this latest release from the superb American Classics series, infused with characteristic, deliciously pastoral, lyricism, show off Harris at his most colourful. The National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine brings to the fore some intricate instrumentation in its adept performance under the guiding hand of Theodore Kuchar."

- Tarik O'Regan, The Observer
