Notes & Reviews:

In addition to electrifying performances and exciting repertoire, this fascinating disc offers several world premiere recordings to the Cage canon. Flautist and Cage expert Roberto Fabricciani is joined by percussionist Jonathan Faralli in anticipation of John Cage's 100th birthday in 2013, turning out a disc that reveals a rich interpretation couched in intimate knowledge of the composer's game-changing aleatoric music. An historic disc for an historic event.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
That leaves Two in a (Cage approved) transcription for flute and vibraphone and the notoriously difficult 27'10.554" for a Percussionist. I'd rather hear Two in its original scoring (flute and piano), and after hearing how liberally Faralli and Fabbriciani interpreted Cage elsewhere on the program, I'm not at all sure that I'd place much confidence in the authority of the percussion work. But all the sounds are interesting, the performers alert and virtuosic, and the engineering superb. Worthwhile for new music aficionados so long as they keep my caveats in mind.
