Notes & Reviews:

"These are nimble arrangements that capture the antic (or mellow) spirit of the originals. The Studies selected include a fair number of the slower ones, which lend themselves to negotiation by human players; No. 6, a languid, jazzy, quirkily rocking reverie, is among Nancarrow's most inspired inventions. Even at its simplest, though, this music requires extraordinary virtuosity, and the Calefax Quintet and pianist Ivo Janssen deliver bracing and assured performances. The CD should be of strong interest to fans of Nancarrow and of vibrant performances of new music. MDG's sound is clean, lively, and natural." -All Music Guide

Gramophone Magazine
This latest selection from the composer's back catalogue of player piano studies, arranged by Raaf Hekkema and brilliantly dispatched by the Calefax Reed Quintet and pianist Ivo Janssen, does more than any to impart a real sense of warmth and humanity to Nancarrow's work.
