Notes & Reviews:

"The lively and discordant opening of Chen's "...as like a raging fire..." might well jolt the listener right out of his/her seat, given the somnolent dream world of the Tanaka work that precedes it... These pieces are not distinguished by their "Asian-ness" so much as by the special properties of the chamber scoring and the level of attention paid to individual events and gestures within the music. For that, the Azure Ensemble is surely to be congratulated; all of the pieces are very clearly defined in terms of the performances, which are polished, disciplined, and thoughtful... a highly enjoyable, even transcendent, disc of contemporary music." -All Music Guide
