"Hangoverture, written to celebrate the new millennium, aptly lives up to its title. It consists of a potpourri of tunes in various styles, ranging from a drunken waltz to symphonic jazz. Like most of Perillo’s work, its celebratory character seems frequently tempered by ominous undercurrents, and this duality validates much thematic invention that might otherwise simply sound trite." -David Hurwitz, Classics Today. Recorded by the St Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra, Yuval Waldman, conductor on Centaur records.
