Notes & Reviews:

At once a sobering historic reminder and musical revelation, this collection presents the musically disparate paths taken by 3 Jewish Polish survivors of the Holocaust: Roman Ryterband, Artur Gelbrun, Mieczyslaw Weinberg, performed by Rachel Titelman (harp), Marcos Fregnani-Martins (flute), Daniel Rubinstein (violin), and Pierre Henri Xuereb (viola).

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
Gelbrun's Introduction and Arabesque for Harp has a serious sounding beginning with sharp gestures. Vainberg's Trio in I has antiphonal chromatic lines and wayward polytonal counterpoint. The ingenious harp part of II makes an impressionist effect. For all their harmonic and melodic range, all the works on the record are readily comprehensible and highly listenable. The performances are all skilled, with clear sound. An enjoyable release.
