International Record Review
It's always a pleasure to listen to John McCabe's music. Its elegant craftsmanship and expressional invitation unfailingly take hold, bidding that we listen and become involved...an impressive recital of striking music in fine performances, recorded in the presence of the composer.

MusicWeb International
I cannot fault the playing on this disk. All the soloists and the chamber ensemble play this music with flair, concentration and obvious pleasure.
