"Not the least bit 'listener unfriendly' but it couldn't have been written at any other time but now. An example of the kind of piece that should be the 'sound of classical music' on today's radio stations."
"These four chamber works date from the mid-90s and serve to demonstrate how far American academic composition has come in just one generation. No cerebrally dissonant flailings here: instead the general ambiance is pleasant, cheery, and, even at its most intense, fundamentally gentle. The language is post-minimalistically modal, with chromaticism in short supply."
"Alternately rhythmically insistent and dynamic, and tenderly melodic, Galbraith's music falls into a kind of modern-romantic category which allows the composer's individual voice to be heard uncluttered by the constraints of any particular school of composition."
