is a resounding success:

 

"Daugherty is in grand, inventive form...he sends the cello soaring and singing with the orchestra...Cellist Zuill Bailey more than meets the score's demands with playing that combines fervour and poetry." 

(Donald Rosenberg, Gramophone)

 

"Daugherty captures very effectively the mix of epic grandiloquence and wistfulness...with the solo organ of Paul Jacobs evoking the vast spaces of the castle." 

(James Mannheim, Allmusic.com)

 

"VIRTUOSO PYROTECHNICS...

Daugherty literally pulls out all of the stops...The finale has all of the glitz and glamor of the gilded age...the piece surely deserves repertoire status."(David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday)
