"...the strings are the best section of all in this per-service professional orchestra. And the warm, resonant, balanced engineering is excellent too..."

"Now here’s what I suggest to the intrepid folks in Fort Smith, who have every reason to be very proud of their achievement. Put together a series of Still programs over the next few years, and slowly make this a series. I have no doubt that it would be possible to attract the necessary sponsorship, nor do I doubt that Naxos would be happy to distribute the artistic results, and we’d naturally be pleased to review them. It would be a credit to the orchestra, the town, the state, the cause of promoting the music of one of this country’s foremost composers, and the cause of good music in general. So there you have it, a win-win situation, which you as music lovers can make even more attractive by dashing out and purchasing this very enjoyable recording."

David Hurwitz - ClassicsToday.com - May 2008


"...the excellent booklet note for this Naxos release gives a detailed biography of Still, and one hopes the CD’s budget price is an inducement to sample these excellent scores ... these performances from the Fort Smith Symphony are excellent, committed, and excellently prepared under John Jeter’s direction; he seems really under the music’s skin, which is demonstrated in comparison with Neeme Järvi’s Detroit Symphony recording for Chandos of the Symphony. The latter is perfectly fine; it’s simply that Jeter seems more alive to Still’s particular personality…this Naxos release is a winner, and is very well recorded."

Colin Anderson - Fanfare - June 2005
