Notes & Reviews:

Michael Torke has created a substantial body of works in virtually every genre, each with a characteristic personal stamp that combines restless rhythmic energy with ravishingly beautiful melodies. Torke wrote 'The Yellow Pages' while he was a graduate student at Yale, and from this early effort many of his signature compositional techniques were codified. 'Change of Address' is a suite from Torke's so-far unrecorded opera 'King of Hearts'.
