San Francisco Symphony conducted by John Adams


“a fantastic performance by all concerned, not least the wordless female vocal trio that Adams employs….a great disc for all Adams fans!”

Presto Classical


“Notable is Synergy Vocals, the trio of female voices (described by Adams as sirens), singing a wordless harmony and a rather scat-like vocal ….. Significantly adding to the overall effect of the piece is Synergy Vocals as ‘the sirens’ with their ethereal wordless harmonies …. Marvellously played and recorded this CD will unquestionably appeal to a much wider audience than John Adams devotees. This stunning album is a cast-iron certainty to be one of my Records of the Year
