Notes & Reviews:

Though hailing from different eras, postwar Italian experimentalist Luciano Berio and contemporary composer Huang Ruo are united here in their exploration of identical pieces of violin music played solo and with ensemble accompaniment. Acclaimed violinist David Bowlin reveals how two seemingly identical paths can be marked by endless contrasts. Features the Oberlin Conservatory's award-winning Contemporary Music Ensemble under the direction of Timothy Weiss.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The last of the "fragments" contains delicate, serene melodies with elegant glissandos, mirroring the end of the concerto. I would recommend this record for its novelty in packaging these works together as well as the overall high quality of music and performance.
