Stephen Albert's "Flower of the Mountain" for orchestra and soprano is a movingly rhapsodic setting of Molly Bloom's sexually charged soliloquy from James Joyce's Ulysses. Conductor and orchestra are so comfortable with the music that the performance had freedom and grandeur.
David Patrick Stearns, USA Today,1/1/0001
...expressive, balanced and beautifally crafted. It is also meaningful...the music is tonal (and) achieves a hypnotic effect.
Daniel Schellack, Los Angeles Herald Examiner ,1/1/0001
...fresh and contemporary...beautifully crafted, dramatic and superbly orchestrated.
Donald Dierks , San Diego Union,1/1/0001
