Notes & Reviews:

George Rochberg's relationship with the past is not one of nostalgia; it is one of intimate, living familiarity. 'Partita-Variations', an energetic and exuberant work, makes unpredictable forays into realms of tragedy, innocence, mischief and heartfelt affection. 'Nach Bach', written for the harpsichordist Igor Kipnis, is a discourse between two composers, active centuries apart, yet united in spirit and dramatic intent. A dark and deeply anguished work, 'Sonata-Fantasia' demands the performer's ultimate emotional, intellectual and technical powers. Volumes 1 (NXS 8559631) and 2 (NXS 8559632) are also available.

"Sally Pinkas has mastered these work’s formidable hardships and is able to express them in a way that I think the composer would have been happy with, and the Naxos recording at the Spaulding Auditorium at Dartmouth University is everything one could ask for. Perhaps the Third String Quartet is still the best way to come to this composer, or the Violin Concerto—but oh, do come!" -Audiophile Audition
