Notes & Reviews:

Lock and Key opens the door to discover harmonious, melodic chamber works tied together by a shared understanding for the most treasured aspects of humanity. Offering a variety of styles illustrating the growth of classical forms, Lock and Key serves as a concise collection of contemporary works for small ensemble.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Navona Records offers composers the possibility to record and release their music with excellent professionals; they package and advertise the releases well and usually include scores and detailed liner notes. The expressive range of the music is also wide. Salvage performs them himself on what sounds like a rather small baby grand piano in a very small room. Perttu's Gloamin, for flute and piano, is a nicely wrought one-movement fantasy in a gracious, post-tonal idiom. Hawkins's offering is an entertaining suite, Bonjour Ma Petite; scored for piano, string quartet, and double bass, it's very conventional in form and style. Hawkins designed it to be played by children, and the Moravian Philharmonic Chamber Performers realize it beautifully.
