Notes & Reviews:

"...These are testing works, both in terms of their technical demands and - in the case of the sonatas - simply to make their diverse and fragmented structures cogent, and the performers rise effectively to the challenge in a pleasantly natural recording. Kurkowicz's flamboyant account of 'A Paganini' especially excited my admiration... History is going to weed out quite a lot of Schnittke's prolific output, but these four pieces will surely stand the test of time." **** -BBC Music
