Notes & Reviews:

"This is a major release for two reasons - one will look high and low to find better harp playing that's recorded better than on this CD, and its inclusion of one of Rochberg's greatest scores makes the issue compelling for all fans of contemporary music in general...It's surprizing that Kondonassis seems to have no current competition for the harp version of 'Ukiyo-E',...this disc is worth having for it alone. But there are other gems here too...highly recommended." -Fanfare
