Notes & Reviews:

"What a midcareer retrospective at the Whitney Museum is to a visual artist, Michael Torke's six-CD set of orchestral music is for a composer. When his recordings for Argo/Decca label went out of print, Mr. Torke bought up the rights and reissued them himself in a handsome package of vibrant, appealing and well-wrought music." - The New York Times
