"The piece has an unrestrained, gradual build-up that makes a progression with each movement. The third movement contrasts a pensive, withdrawn state with one of exuberant jungle-like vitality." - The Chautauqua Daily

"This lively music exploits Brazilian dance rhythms and bird calls in a way that liberates the soul while reminding us of our limitations." - The Music Conoisseur
