Notes & Reviews:

This suite of seven works - six for cello & piano and one for six cellos - is mesmerizing in its elegant beauty. The performers are cellist Derek Stein, a member of noted Los Angeles new-music ensembles wild Up and gnarwhallaby, and the composer, a revered fixture on the Southern California new music scene for many years.

Los Angeles Times
Metaphysically tinged ... lustrous.

L.A. Weekly
Of ethereal simplicity ... refined ... spare.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Fink's two to three-and-a-half-minute pieces here are all for cello and piano except for 'Aftersong', which keeps adding more and more cellos to the stew, electronically no doubt. The idiom of all the pieces is tonal and easy to listen to, not quite minimal but on the borderline. The playing is fine, and they are not difficult to play or hear.
