Notes & Reviews:

This is a great collection of contemporary works for clarinet, saxophone, piano, and electronics.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
Much of the music is academic, dabbling in abstract themes, strange harmonies, and bizarre sound effects. Only the Wanamaker says something meaningful, transcending its neo-modernist language to produce moments of striking charm and poignancy. Bergeron and Masserini take every composer seriously. Rendering each selection with superb balance, blend, and expressive awareness.
