“The three hours of music so beautifully served up here helped brighten several cold and dreary mornings for me during the past weeks.” – Ralph P. Locke, The Arts Fuse. Read the full review here.

"Both volumes give us welcome works in vibrant performances, surely filling out with nicely done additions for the comprehensive Thomson enthusiast but also remaining of close interest for anyone who wants to follow and understand 20th century US styles and sub-styles. A very good re-release, timely and evergreen. Check it out by all means.” – Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review. Read the full review here.
