Notes & Reviews:

"...[Lees's] language is rooted in an orientation around Prokofiev and Bartok, but it has evolved considerably from those coordinates...All three sonatas grow more rewarding with repeated hearings. Moscow-born violinist Ellen Orner offers performances that reveal the same uncompromising, intensely serious-minded attitude found in the music...This is a superb recording that deserves far more attention than it is likely to receive..." -Simmons, Fanfare
