Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Brian Olewnick awarded the album 4 stars stating "Listeners who might be cautious about the more arcane aspects of his work will find a relatively accessible introduction to Braxton's "classical" leanings herein as will others interested in the state of contemporary, creative orchestral writing. A rewarding, challenging effort".[2]
