Notes & Reviews:

Among today's composers, Augusta Read Thomas has remained consistent in blazing her own path. In this she has undoubtedly been aided by her cosmopolitan training, having studied with Alan Stout (Northwestern University), Oliver Knussen (Tanglewood), and Jacob Druckman (Yale University), as well as one final year in London at the Royal Academy of Music. This second volume in a series devoted to Thomas' music presents six works for various chamber combinations. The other three, which occupy the greater part of the CD's playing time, are solo piano works that span the entire chronological range of the collection.
