American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Augusta Read Thomas's Resounding Earth is an opportunity for the composer to explore an interest in bells that she's had for years. She explains that bells are used all over the world, for different purposes. There are four movements, each of which feels like a new perspective on the same spirited percussion music.
