Rob Barnett
MusicWeb International, July 2005

"Peter Breiner and the orchestra take on the unforgiving task of presenting these ikonic symbols of nationhood. They do this fervently. This is a highly admirable enterprise.

Peter Breiner: a familiar name in the Marco Polo and Naxos catalogues. He was born in 1957, a Canadian Slovak. He studied with composer Alexander Moyzes in Bratislava. He has written two symphonies (let's hear them!) and much else. You're most likely to remember him as the arranger and conductor of flocks of Naxos and Marco Polo light music CDs. His Beatles à la baroque and Elvis arrangements are notable and make him a steady earner for the label. His anthem arrangements were used during the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004.

A mandatory purchase for the nationality/sovereignty anorak. Indispensable for bandmasters, state musicians, Mastermind contestants, Tovey experts and organisers of diplomatic events and international visits. Also any self-respecting major or regional library will want to have this on the shelves."
