Notes & Reviews:

The debut recording from the Helton-Thomas duo is a smorgasbord of contemporary compositions that range from the ruminative to the boisterous, the melodious to the dissonant, in short a perfect reflection of the modern zeitgeist. Featuring compositions by Dorothy Chang, a spectral and spookily lovely Jonathan Elliott, Edison Denisov, Augusta Read Thomas,Mark Engebretson, and Libby Larsen.
