About the all-Britten program Music Director Alan Gilbert conducted Nov. 21–23, The New Yorker's Alex Ross wrote, "Alan Gilbert, on the podium, gave glistening clarity to the insectoid instrumental writing" in Spring Symphony.

In The New York Times, Anthony Tommasini wrote, describing the same work: "Mr. Gilbert drew out the modernist strands of this score. The performance from the inspired orchestra, the New York Choral Artists and the impressive Brooklyn Youth Chorus was a highlight of the Britten year."
