Notes & Reviews:

Tobachi is a collection of string quartets written by students from the Chickasaw Nation. These pieces, classical in instrumentation, are written by young students, but deliver an emotional impact far beyond their years. A unique perspective on life in 2013 makes for a compelling listen. The Linden Quartet performs these quartets with grace and eloquence as well as spirit and drive, in a manner that directly reflects the wishes of the composers. Each composer was present at the recording session, and the interaction between the Linden Quartet and the composer ensured that each piece was captured and performed exactly as the composer wished.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The Chickasaw Nation has produced a Young Composers Recording Project, and this is their second CD. The Chickasaw Summer Arts Academy is the source. This is their ninth year of existence, and judging by this release they are doing valuable work. They are all expressive in nature and beautifully performed by the Linden Quartet. Most of the pieces are lyrical in nature and pleasantly exploratory in harmony. All of this music blends effectively together without becoming boring. Thank you all for this highly enjoyable program! Let's have more!
