"Anyone who has ever experienced the incredibly prescient mastery of meter and texture embodied in singular works like 'The Flight of Icarus' and 'The New Age' will have to alter his/her whole perspective on the music of our epoch."
"these first two volumes ... feature extraordinarily dynamic interpretations, superb playing of very difficult music from the Arnhem Philharmonic, and lush, full recorded sound ...."
"It is also quite evident ... that Lyndon-Gee has a deep understanding of and vast sympathy for what the composer was trying to accomplish ... .. [he] conducts with an unflagging energy that nonetheless knows where to give when necessary."
"... these initial two CD's in the series are headed straight for my 1997 want list."
"... it would be impossible to overstate the importance of Marco Polo's initiative in finally putting this repertoire on disc."
"Lyndon-Gee has clearly dedicated a sizeable chunk of his musical life to championing Markevitch's music. He has now given us five world premiere recordings, in addition to a highly persuasive performance of 'L'Envol d'Icare', with the results that are mostly excellent and in some cases superb."
