REVIEWS

'...for classical-music lovers really looking for something different ... This project of the Australian Youth Orchestra is already a legend, and they play it like it's repertoire material. A real seek-and-ye-shall-(hopefully)-find CD.'
Stephen Ellis, Fanfare (USA), December 1993


'I'm giving this disc to everyone for Christmas.'
Andrew Ford, 24 Hours, December 1992


'The Australian Youth Orchestra plays with discpline and style under Graham Abbott's direction, and there is some fine solo playing. The recording... is of high quality.'
Elliott Gyger, Sounds Australian, Autumn 1993
