Notes & Reviews:

Centaur Records presents a new release of contemporary chamber music by Laura Schwendinger.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Laura Schwendinger's chamber music is meticulously crafted and well formed. High Wire Act (2005), the title track, is meant to portray trapeze artists in their swoops and dives, as well as the mobiles of Alexander Calder. I like the program.



Reviews

Colorful Chamber Music
The central work of this CD, High Wire Act is a wonderfully colorful and evocative little set of pieces in which the flute is featured. The Nonet is a large and appealing work, the outer movements fast and the inner movement, slow and touching. The other smaller chamber works are attractive as well. I enjoyed getting to know this composer's work.
