Notes & Reviews:

This survey of Adès's early works for small forces rejoices in a compositional voice of precocious assurance. His sideways look at musical techniques and human frailty consistently provokes, teases, satisfies and delights the ear. His considerable talents as a pianist are also displayed in these first recordings by a composer of and for our time.

BBC Music Magazine
This generously filled survey of Adés' early chamber and vocal works provides a timely reminder of his precocious compositional gifts.
