Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
In the final work, mezzo-soprano Jamie Van Eyck joins Dr Medisky in Douglas Helvering's Mandatus, which incorporates sung poetry and piano accompaniment. And what no one would ever know unless you look at the music or were told is that the piano prelude and postlude spell out the words "dead" and "alive" while the oboe part visually illustrates tree limbs and birds. This is an imaginative program built on ideas intended to make us think more about music as a vehicle to understand the world beyond itself.
