Notes & Reviews:

Solo Musica presents the Rodrieg Ensemble on an album that explores the dawn of modern classical music and its continuing legacy with three late works of Claude Debussy as the point of departure. The album then explores the ongoing influence of the early modern period with Bohuslav Martinu's Trio for Flute, Cello and Piano; Harold Laudenslager's Evocation for Solo Flute; and Mark Rodrieg's 2011 triptych Holy War X, performed by the Rodrieg Ensemble and guest artists, including the Intercontemporain Quartet and female singers from Egypt, Italy and Japan.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
All of this music can be related in some sense to the work of Debussy; and Rodrieg makes the point clearer in his own three-part suite, with movements titled 'Jihad', 'Bacio', and 'Syrinx 21'. On the other side of the fence, it is well played and contains some fine music. Verdict: ambiguous.
