Gramophone Reviews San Francisco Ballet Moszkowski

Gramophone Magazine reviews San Francisco Ballet Orchestra's Moszkowski: From Foreign Lands recording in the November 2016 issue:

“Why concert promoters and record labels have such trouble with Moszkowski I'll never know, especially his once-celebrated orchestral music. For instance, not a single item from this disc ever featured in the BBC's wide-ranging, inclusive Proms, with the exception of the work that made Moszkowski's fortune, the five Spanish Dances, Op. 2…it is a pleasure…to have the repertoire on the disc with its four world premieres. One of these, Fackeltanz, is a delightfully turned ear worm, as is the Habanera. Hearing these works for the first time, the performances…[capture] all the typical charm and rhythmic exuberance of the composer.” —Jeremy Nicholas, Gramophone
