Notes & Reviews:

"Although Harrison was far from ovscure - his pre-eminence among the American West Coast school of composers in the past few decades has rarely been in question - he remains known today only for a handful of works. His varied output, though, leaves plenty of opportunity for discoveries in thematic recordings such as this one." - Ken Smith, Gramophone
