Notes & Reviews:

The music on this recital was specifically written or arranged for duo violinists Angela and Jennifer Chun. It highlights the personal and professional connections between Philip Glass and Nico Muhly, a longtime colleague and admirer of Glass's work. Glass's miniaturist works, Mad Rush and In the Summer House, create a maximum effect when paired with Muhly's minimalist Four Studies and Honest Music.

The Guardian, 24th April 2016
This disc of music for two violins, agilely played by Angela and Jennifer Chun, highlights [Glass and Muhly's] strongly individual voices.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2016
Angela and Jennifer Chun's violin lines are interwoven around shimmering drones generated by Muhly on piano and keyboard to create effective soundscapes... the Chun duo's sensitive and delicate playing imparts at times ethereal and transcendental qualities to the [Glass].

Record Review, 4th June 2016
Tragic passions to get your teeth into ... [an] eloquent performance... these five cantatas from Christie and co. certainly allow us to hear an inventive musical mind at work.
