David Hurwitz
ClassicsToday.com, June 2013

There have been many fine recordings of this opulent score…but if forced to choose a single recording I have no hesitation in picking this one…I challenge anyone with even the vaguest idea of how this music should sound to compare this newcomer…and not reach the honest conclusion that Kord conducts better…The fact that this is a live recording only makes the achievement all the more remarkable.

There are so many outstandingly fine moments, from the variously spaced on-and-offstage horns just before “Into the Forest”, to the glistening “Waterfall”–even those silly cows exude charm and atmosphere. Best of all, Kord refuses to let the ending drag on indefinitely, bringing the piece to a clear finish that’s as satisfying as it is inevitable. © ClassicsToday.com Read complete review
