American Composers Orchestra / Press

“The American Composers Orchestra has brought to the city a repertory of music of our time which leaves all the major American orchestras far behind.”

The New York Times

“I don't know what light I emerged with, other than that of fireworks shooting off in all directions. But as usual with the marvelous ACO concerts, I was never bored.”

Charles Michener - New York Observer

“The American Composers Orchestra continues to offer gratifying proof that contemporary American music is alive, well, and ably performed. The orchestra under Dennis Russell Davies played with uninhibited enthusiasm, as they did all through this entire colorful, rewarding concert”

Jack Sullivan - American Record Guide

“The American Composers Orchestra has already done more to produce works by American composers than any other organization.”

Matthias Kriesberg - The New York Times

“One rather doubts that any of the New York season's upcoming orchestra concerts stands a chance of topping the sense of wonder, the excitement of discovery, and the shake-your-bootie, party-down attitude of the ACO's survey.”

Michael Redmond - The Star Ledger

“The ACO is this nation's only orchestra dedicated to exclusive performance of new music, and as such is a treasure...it brings a great assurance and exuberance to its performances.”

Robert Carl - Fanfare
