"The Brooks Seascapes[sic] (for orchestra) hints strongly at Debussy and Benjamin Britten...deftly exploitive of an orchestra's sonic possibilities...from the opening soft hints of sound, lows and highs seeming to come from the depths and the firmament, through breezes and gale and stormy tumult and, finally, a returning calm"
- Jacobi, Herald-Tribune                                  

"The high points were undoubtedly Richard Brooks' Collage (for wind ensemble)..[which was] received enthusiastically by the large audience. The quintessentially romantic Collage played upon three ideas, culled from the first four measures of the piece: four chordal sonorities, a crescendo-diminuendo silhouette, and a rapid 'riff' in the marimba. Incessantly repeated six-note segments of the D-major ascending and C-major descending scales, derived from the marimba riff, propelled the work forward through a dense frenzy of material."
- Dominick, Perspectives of New Music                                  

"I wanted this [CD] to be great, and I was not disappointed...I kept returning to the Brooks (Circular Motions for flute, clarinet and piano - Innova label) ...it's heady stuff, but still great fun..."
- Chaffee, American Record Guide

"The Evening's Freshest Encounter Was Dillon's First Symphony, Written Brilliantly for Its String Choirs and Demonstrating That Every Modern Symphony Doesn't Require Steroidal Brass and Percussion forces. Dillon Argues His Case Principally Through Strings and Woodwinds, Flavoring the Mix With a Pair of Horns. Propulsive Energy Defines the First and Third Movements, Which Possessed Exceptional Structural Rigor and Harmonic Richness. Even More Remarkable Was the Second Movement - A Slow, Ghostly Sequence With Slightly Freakish Double-Bass Solos and Small, Plaintive Exclamations From the Oboe. the Entire Symphony Testifies to the Composer's Compelling, Innate Soulfulness."
- Louisville Courier-Journal                                  

"Lawrence Dillon's Flute Concerto ... Is Truly An Outstanding Work. Cast In a Three-Part Movement form, the Piece Successfully Maintained An Extremely Coherent and Powerful Dramatic Flow ... Dillon's Unique Compositional Voice Clearly Makes Itself Heard. [A] Passionate and Often Unpredictable Work."

Salvatore Di Vittorio Composer and Conductor
"I strongly believe in Maestro Di Vittorio's talent not only as an elegant conductor, but also as a gifted composer. His conducting style follows and respects the tradition of the Italian schools. After studying his symphonies and opera, I praise his beautiful compositions, his tonal melodic lines combined with original harmonic treatment and rhythmic vitality"
- Maestro Piero Bellugi, Former Artistic Director of Teatro Massimo Opera Palermo                                  

"Mr. Di Vittorio led his ensemble in the final concert of its inaugural season in a program called "Souvenir from Florence", which highlighted the string section. The musicians played with vigor and commitment throughout the evening, producing a polished, rich sound. The Adagietto from Mahler's Symphony No. 5...received a stirring performance. The orchestra concluded the evening with a voluptuous rendition of Tchaikovsky's popular Souvenir de Florence."

- the Washington Post                                  

(Chandos CD) "...Each Work Is An Important Addition to Music In the Late 20th Century, Its Sense of Evolution From Previous Generations Welcome at a Time When Change Seems to Have Become a Virtue In Itself."
- Fanfare

Such Is the Case With Steven Gerber's First Symphony...the Three-Movement Work Held Me Mesmerized and Fascinated for Its Entire 25-Minute Length...What Is Found Is Expressive Lyricism, Searching Mystery, and Strucutral Cohesion..."
