New York Times Dance Critic Alastair Macaulay wrote: "The best new choreography I saw in 2008 — Paul Taylor's Beloved Renegade — will be seen in New York in February… We're shown the life-art-muse-death visions of a Romantic artist… Mr. Taylor, in his first use of choral music, makes strikingly differentiated responses to its contrasting orchestral and vocal sonorities."
