Notes & Reviews:

"The more times I've listened to James Beckel's 'The Glass Bead Game,' the more it has grown on me (in spite of the initial jolt of hearing it open with a passage straight out of Holst's 'Mercury'). This concerto's inspiration comes from the novel by Hermann Hesse; the CD notes set out the specific program in full detail. Readers may know Hesse's novel; it was required reading for serious young intellectuals in the 1970s because of its heady combination of angst and mysticism... His use of harp and piano in the orchestral fabric is distinctive, and his depiction of a church-like atmosphere in the second movement especially effective. As with the other concertos, the horn part is written for a virtuoso and Hustis effortlessly rises to the challenge... Crystal's sonics are all they should be, reproducing a genuine concert hall ambience... If you're into horn concertos, this disc is for you... " -Philip Scott, Fanfare
