" The album "The American Scene" shows the whole spectrum of one of the most gifted arrangers of the 20th century: "I Dream of Jeanny" steht beispielhaft f¸r die wahrhaft unglaublichen Streicher, als Gegengewicht stehen Titel wie das spr¸hende "Camptown Races". Century: "I Dream of Jeanny" is an example of the truly incredible strings, as a counterweight are titles such as the sparkling "Camptown Races". Die Bearbeitung von Folksongs f¸r groﬂes Orchester birgt die Gefahr der Belanglosigkeit, Mantovani jedoch erliegt ihr nicht: Zu faszinierend ist die 'Wall of Sound', die er sein Orchester aufbauen l‰sst. The processing of folk songs for orchestra carries the risk of irrelevance, Mantovani, however, does not succumb to it, so fascinating is the 'Wall of Sound', which he would build with his orchestra." - AMG.
