Notes & Reviews:

"This release...is a model for packaging a challenging contemporary composer...with informative notes and committed performances...There is much to enjoy here, especially the cool, straight line of Penelope Walmsley-Clarke's soprano and the imaginative whirrings, spinnings, and roarings from the BBC Symphony and London Sinfonietta. The first volume in this...Benjamin series was well received; this one deserves to be as well." -Sullivan, ARG
