Notes & Reviews:

Max Lifchitz writes: "Contemporary composers enjoy writing for mixed chamber ensembles, a medium that is both flexible and capable of articulating the most intricate contrapuntal textures. For the performers, this music provides a marvelous opportunity for ensemble and solo playing. It also challenges the technical and expressive possibilities of their instruments. The adventurous listener will be pleasantly surprised by the diversity and originality found in this album. The four recent compositions, recorded here for the first time, reflect the vibrant eclecticism evident in today’s musical sound scape.
