Notes & Reviews:

"While all of these works are certainly engaging and satisfying, Quarrington saves what may be the best for last: Mieczyslaw Weinberg's Sonata for Solo Contrabass, Op. 108. It is refreshing to hear the bass by itself, unencumbered by the need to project over a piano. In this very Shostakovich-like composition, Quarrington is able to demonstrate his full range of impressive tone color, precise left hand technique, and keen musical insight." -All Music Guide
