"The National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland under Colman Pearce gives what seem like idiomatic and secure performances...Good Sound."

Michael Jameson, July 2001

"Seoirse Bodley's (b. Dublin, 1933) music reflects modern trends but also embraces traditional elements of Irish folk music. This addition to Marco Polo's 'Irish Composers Series' brings two of his more recent orchestral scores to the catalog for the first time, in capable performances from the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland under Coleman Pearce. Bodley's Symphony No. 4 (1991) uses over-arching variation technique throughout its four movements. The most important cross-referenced theme occurs near the start in the cellos and later furnishes material for the Andante, placed second; this includes important solo passages (both nicely played here) for the first trumpet and concertmaster. Irish folk themes (or what passes for them) are most evident in the finale of this rather effortful piece..."
