Notes & Reviews:

"Not only are Sharp's works frequently abrasive on the surface, but once inside you're liable to find dense thickets of rhythmic patterns that sound more like mathematics textbook than a musical score. Neither does the playing here sound particulatly idiomatic, since many of these pieces were originally conceived on guitar and later rewritten for bowed strings." - Ken Smith, Gramophone
