Notes & Reviews:

"...The [First Symphony] might best be described as late Sibelius (slow-moving harmonies, ominous pedal points, and certain woodwind pairings) with an added dash of the apocalyptic...The Second Symphony, on the other hand, reminded me of Ligeti in its slow exploration of quiet timbres, soft-pedaled microtonal clusters, and the 'empty' sounds of unisons, octaves, fifths, and 'bent' intervals...this is a disc I'll be returning to often - especially for the Second Symphony." -Ashby, ARG
