The Critics Say:
AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE
"The music is consistently attractive, and their playing is both pleasing and spirited ... Not without its challenges, this is an irresistible recital that commands attention, both for its music and its creativity. It is very well played and recorded, and should be investigated by the serious collector."

Read a review from England's MusicWeb here.

The Critics Say:
AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE
"(Hsaio) is an extremely lyrical composer who is not called the "Taiwanese Rachmaninoff" without good reason...His music is like a river evbbing and flowing, changing course here and there, varying in color as the sun hits it from different angles, sometimes shifting in a blink from a brief stormy passage to tranquility...The Piano Concerto could be an undiscovered Rachmaninoff Fifth...Some of the solo writing (in the Violin Concerto) suggests a simplified Elgar Violin Concerto...a sharp turn to atonality in the Symphony Formosa...It's an interesting piece because Hsiao is as inventive generating ideas and color as he was spinning melody in his romantic works. The Russian Federal Orchestra has a full, sometimes rugged sound that works well...this is music to lie back and enjoy, not analyze."

The Critics Say:
AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE
"This Scheherezade takes a strong middle ground ... tempos are sound and the overall pacing is comfortable ... lovely violin solos ... (Russian Easter Overture) Jordania does well, capturing the mystical serenity of the opening and third sections, without missing the wild, almost pagan, frenzy of the second and final sections ... an honest rendering of the score."

"...Quite a credible account of Tchaikovsky's great symphony, ably supported by the engineers ... There is a comfortable warmth and richness to the string playing ... The low brass too ... are a joy to hear. Jordania imbues the music with such emotion and commitment ... this new recording is quite unlike any other you're likely to find."

Read a review here.

The Critics Say:
FANFARE
"Jordania's Rachmaninoff Second is brightly recorded in Moscow; the sound is clear, rich and full. He brings a spirited buoyancy to the piece and no conductor, even Gergiev, uncovers the structural integrity of the work so vividly. Jordania doesn't romanticize the work, he allows its own melodic resplendence to emerge, and, as a result, he does not drain it of feeling. No other recording I've heard delineates the multilayered complexity as lucidly as Jordania and his excellent orchestra."

"Jordania is also one of the top three or four conductors who knows what to do with Tchaikovsky that is, to present his highly charged, emotional works with balance and taste. I would rank this performance of Francesca da Rimini right up there with outstanding performances by Munch, Gergiev and Muti ... I know of no other recording so devoid of the conductor's ego; he permits the music to express itself. He never imposes drama, and there is a naturalness to his Tchaikovsky that makes listening to it a deeply satisfying experience ... Why isn't this man the music director of one of America's major orchestras?"
