Notes & Reviews:

The latest release from this venturesome label showcases Robert Martin's refreshingly modern musical interpretations of four paintings by Arshile Gorky- the Armenian-American master. Expertly performed by the North/South Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Max Lifchitz, the album features premiere recordings of six compositions written over a period of three decades. Soloists include flutist Lisa Hansen and guitarist Jordan Dodson. "Martin's interest in Gorky's art is apparently not so much in the subject matter of a particular picture as in the general notion of what gives an abstract image wholeness and presence." (New York Times)
