American Record Guide, May/June 2016
Eight Strings & a Whistle, who perform Anderson's Chamber Symphony III, is three players on violin, cello, and flute. Their program is harmonically and rhythmically light, with forays into chromaticism, and enjoyable. The recording opens with Martin Rokeach's continually ascending Going Up?. Peter Jona Korn's Aloysia Serenade is full of repetitive harmonic sequences in II and dramatic motives in III. The finale is in a medium tempo and has a spirited moments. Bad Robots by Edmund Cionek is the most memorable and adventurous piece on the recording.
