Notes & Reviews:

"Despite my personal limitations in liking Schnittke's music, this performance of the Piano Quintet, the major work on this album, really held me through all its quarter-tones, slides, and seeming atonality resolving into traditional harmony... [AFCM Ensemble] give a no-holds-barred performance. Their flow and movement give point and direction. Their use of tone color covers the spectrum... This album is an excellent introduction to Schnittke's chamber music." -French, ARG
