Kyle MacMillan
Denver Post, December 2002

"The classical-music world finally has realized in recent years that it has to take a more imaginative approach if it is going to reach new audiences. A good example is a series of boxed sets titled "Life and Works," which offer guided tours of important composers' lives, with narration and simple dramatizations interspersed with excerpts from their major works. As usual with Naxos, the musicians are solid performers if not big names. This four-CD collection is accompanied by a 125-page booklet chock-full of useful, well-presented information. Also released this year were installments on Tchaikovsky and J.S. Bach, with three others available from 2001."
