The Symphony displays influences of Walton, Vaughan Williams and Stravinsky within a Sibelian framework producing, in effect, a musical self-portrait.
The song cycle, virtually a cantata, sets words by the Elizabethan poet Nicolas Breton and is deeply felt, displaying more of the film composerís personality.
"Herrmann and the National PO bring a greater epic feel to bear (Symphony)...Based on texts by the Elizabethan poet Nicolas Breton, these (The Fantasticks) are five most evocative, consistently imaginative settings, given here with disarming commitment." - Gramophone
"Admirable performances and very good recording (Symphony)......... the soloists are excellent and the orchestral
playing quite lovely. Most rewarding when the sound is so atmospheric (The Fantasticks)." - Penguin Guide
