“Speaking about the symphony, he sees ‘the Violins of Hope as the physical embodiment of Jewish survival…’ No wonder, then, that the breathtaking twenty-two-minute work should assume the character of a wrenching meditation. Don't let its prosaic movement titles fool you either: as titles, “Fast” and “Slow” might seem like afterthoughts, but the material itself is hardly lacking in profundity.”
