Scott Morrison, March 2004

"A Complete Success for Judd and His New Zealanders...The ensemble playing is as passionate as it is precise...The principal players of the NZSO have a real chance to shine here, and they do...Strongly recommended."

David Gutman

"One must applaud Judd's audacity in taking the work on, and he's more than merely serviceable, sometimes trumping the composer's own wilder performance with his paler, more neutral tone...A genuine bargain...with recorded sound way ahead of the super budget norm."

David Hurwitz

"I can't thank Naxos, conductor James Judd, and his terrific New Zealanders enough...These performances not only match Bernstein's in idiomatic flair, rhythmic zest, and sheer spunk, they often surpass them, and believe me I spent a lot of time comparing recordings before going out on this particular limb."
