Notes & Reviews:

This 10 CD compilation features a tremendous selection of contemporary music, selected with the intent of helping music lovers lose any misgivings or reservations about "new" music. The majority of the pieces are chamber music for wind instruments, written in a wide variety of line-ups - but fans of compositions for piano trios and string quartets as well as those interested in choral works will also be more than satisfied.
