Noah Andre Trudeau
American Music, January 2009

"The performances by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra under American conductor William T. Stromberg are fine for a first take on these pieces, if somewhat restrained...recording sound is generally clean...and textures transparent. Overall, this Naxos entry in its American Classics series provides a long overdue tribute to an American composer whose many and wonderfully varied accomplishments cry out for further exploration and rediscovery."

Repertoire, April 2000

"L'oreille se réveille nettement...avec Robert Russell Bennett. Le fait qu'il se soit penché sur Porgy and Bess n'a rien d'étonnant quand on sait qu'il fut l'un des orchestrateurs les plus brillants de Broadway, travaillant très régulièrement avec Gershwin, mais aussi Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers...enfin tous ce que Broadway compte de plus resplendissant.

C'est encore l'orchestre de Moscou qui est ici à contribution, méconnaissable de gouaille et de vivacité sous la direction de Stromberg: un régal!"

"The ear awakes clearly...with Robert Russell Bennett. The fact that he worked on Porgy and Bess should surprise no one as he was one of Broadway's most brilliant orchestrators, working regularly with Gershwin, but also with Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Richard Rogers...ultimately with all of Broadway's great composers.

It is again the Moscow Orchestra performing here with a touch of cheek and vivacity under the direction of Stromberg: a treat!

John Tyler Tuttle
