"The symphonies are actually very robust and large-scaled endeavors whose elaborate and sure-footed facture and Romantic rhetoric derive directly from the Chadwick school by way of the latter's pupil Henry Hadley, with whom the precocious Iowan [Willson] studied... Those of us who are convinced that a huge and fertile layer of medium-range musical Americana remains largely and unjustly neglected by the recording industry have to applaud this example of the industry and dedication of Naxos's 'American Classics' series, especially coming the heels of its wonderful Roger Russell Bennett tribute."
