Notes & Reviews:

"Ruth Crawford Seeger's output may be numerically slender, but the 15 or so 'acknowledged' pieces resonate with extraordinary force. Experimental yet remarkably surefooted they constitute a highly individual modernism that resists easy classification at every turn...The String Quartet, pertinent and cogent, emerges powerfully, the Andante desolate and disconcerting...the Music for Small Orchestra is just as persuasive...A most thought-provoking disc." -Riley, Classic CD
