"A more generalized Jewish inspiration is apparent in many works ... In his epic opera David he portrays the warrior-king’s life and its effect on present-day Israelis ..."

"[Milhaud] was associated with the avant garde of the 1920s, whose abundant production reflects all musical genres. A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, his music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online.
