Notes & Reviews:

Cygnus is one of the most intriguing new music ensembles to have emerged in recent years. With its mixed instrumentation of winds, strings and plucked sounds, Cygnus offers the present day composer a bold new spectrum of colorful combinations to write for. Cygnus presents a consistently exotic and entertaining listening experience. From the flash, exuberant five-suite Claman's Gone For Foreign, to William Anderson's A Giddy Thing for mandolin; Cygnus performs a wide range of music with utmost professionalism. Compositions by Akemi Naito, and Yttrehu's Plectrum Spectrum create a tour de force of rhythmic energy, using Cygnus' full complement of plucked instruments.
