Notes & Reviews:
American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Ted Hearne's Law of Mosaics (2013) is an engaging flexing of compositional creativity and dexterity. The first movement, 'Excerpts from the Middle of Something', sounds exactly as the title suggests: there is no "beginning" or "end"; the music sort of starts and then stops. It is written in chunks that do sound. The performances are masterly and inspiring. This group performs classical, canonical repertoire and contemporary works, and are at ease with both. Their range and flexibility of style is impressive and surpasses most ensembles. The music is also nicely recorded, doing justice to both the playing and the writing. This is a great addition to any collection of new music. I've found myself returning to it often.
