American Record Guide, September/October 2015
The Rhapsody for violin and piano is the lushest, most song-like work, with a soaring violin line played with passion by Andrzej Grabiec. Like Overland Dream, it concludes with a dreamlike jazz chord. The wittiest piece in this upbeat program is Windjammer, a neo-classical exercise full of piquant harmonies and bright colors for wind quintet. All the players seem to be enjoying themselves. The recording is vibrant and clear, just right for the music. The music sounds like it's coming from inside the instrument.
