Notes & Reviews:

This CD presents six works realized by the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra during recent years with its latest principal conductor, Paavo Järvi, including two world premieres of compositions which were also commissioned by FRSO. - As of the 2013/14 season, Mr. Järvi started his new position as Conductor Laureate of the FRSO. He's one of the most successful musicians on the international music scene and a sought-after guest conductor with renowned orchestras in Europe, America and Japan.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The sounds and techniques of the armonica and accordion are emulated by the orchestra, the other instruments acting as sonic expansions of the two. I thoroughly enjoyed this piece and most of the record. I highly recommend purchase if you don't already know Widmann's work and would like some extra Furrer and Kagel.
