American Record Guide, January/February 2014
Dinos Constantinides teaches at Louisiana State University and directed its Festival of Contemporary Music for 22 years, welcoming composers like Cage, Babbitt, Husa, and Krenek to the campus. This is the first time I've heard anything of his, and I've enjoyed it. The Concerto of Psalms is for two violins and orchestra and is based on three well-known Psalms: 19, 130, and 150. It's colorful, accessible, and engaging, even in the near-suspended animation in I. III is a movement of restrained praise: the 7/8 dance is stately and Greek-influenced.

Notes & Reviews:
