"Plumeri pours on a colossus of majestic, good-hearted themes that truly soar from Brigham Young county to the halls of Mount Olympus. Getting a truly muscular sound from the towering orchestral forces of The Moscow Philharmonic, Plumeri’s spectacular combination of rural folk stylings and adventurous pomp proudly displays fantastically lush sensibility."
