These celebrated HDCD recordings were greeted with critical raves when first released. American Romantic George Chadwick wrote music full of orchestral color and wide dynamic range. The Symphonic Sketches have long been an audiophile favorite, but have been sorely in need of a new, top-quality recording. Aphrodite, Tam O‘Shanter, Melpomene and the other works have equally appealing qualities.

 "...The performances under the experienced Jose Serebrier are first-rate, and the recording conveys both detail and a sense of space." 

 
Anthony Burton - BBC MUSIC magazine
 

 "Reference Recordings have shown real fidelity to the creativity of Jose Serebrier. Not only that they have encouraged him in some tangy and imaginative repertoire but now some of there earliest projects are being reissued as twofers. [Chadwick] is warmly recommended for fine rare repertoire and typically sprung, lively sound with power and subtlety aplenty." 

 
Rob Barnett - Classical Music on the Web
 

"This is a definitive set of Chadwick’s best-loved orchestral showpieces. The sound on the reissue – like that of the originals – is ravishing, especially that of massed violins. Dynamics are first-rate. If you love American classical music or need a new sonic spectacular to test our system’s dynamics, this double dose of orchestral Chadwick just might be what you’ve been looking for."
