Notes & Reviews:

"Harbach's music astonished me for its heavy reliance on the lyric and the beautifully (and cogently) framed melodic line. I haven't heard this kind of romanticism for years. She most resembles Copland, who did not play tricks and painted with broad, distinct melodic colors. But...Harbach is her own woman. I could listen to her music for hours...You have got to hear this woman's music if you're a fan of mid-century American romanticism. She brings something entirely new to the table." - American Record Guide
