"As a composer [Pick-Mangiagalli] excelled in light ballet music: already in Il salice d’oro there is a pleasing if facile tunefulness, combined with Viennese dance rhythms and spiced with harmonies and orchestration reminiscent of Strauss and Ravel. In Il carillon magico, Pick-Mangiagalli’s most successful stage work, this promise reached fulfilment: though slight, the style is recognizably personal, with frequent unrelated triads, chromatic slithers, unusually placed augmented triads and diminished 7th chords and so on. Musical means are perfectly matched to dramatic context." John C.G. Waterhouse in Grove Music Online.
