Gramophone (R. Whitehouse)
Christopher Rouse reinforces his pre-eminence among living American symphonists with his Third and Fourth Symphonies; the former a bracingly ingenious take on Prokofiev's Second Symphony; the latter oblique yet provocative in manner. Excellent performances by the NYPO, in the sure highlight of their association with Dacapo.
