"Mr. Zander's orchestra plays with exhilarating authority. The Finale is positively harrowing: cross rhythms explode against one another with brilliant virtuosity. That the performance was taped live makes it doubly impressive...the sound is superb, the interpretation likewise."
John Rockwell, New York Times
"...One of the greatest recordings of the year...the recorded sound will take your breath away...an audiophile's dream...a performance which would do any orchestra proud, a thoroughly convincing interpretation and one of our greatest Sacres..."
Leslie Gerber, Fanfare
"...One of the most extraordinary discs for some time...has to be heard to be believed...the performance has a blazing intensity that few of its slickly produced studio rivals can match...You could not say you truly know the work without it."
"Stunning, positively primeval...with a breathtaking finale...brilliantly transferred to disc."
Lloyd Schwartz, The Boston Phoenix
