Needless to say, a quintet with a bit of imagination would have a marvellous time in programming this work.

Frank Stalzer, Woodwind World, Brass & Percussion, Spring 1978

The music is all imaginative and contented innocence without a dissonant edge to bruise the ears. Even the predatory Pike is portrayed with only a fragile shudder to disturb the effect.
