Notes & Reviews:

"...these wonderful pieces are deliciously varied, full of warmth, character, and drama without sounding the least imitative of any English contemporary. Rawsthorne's music is modern but not acidic...he creates amazingly balanced settings of highly contrasting motives; yet, whatever the restless mood, transitory moments of great melodic beauty are always peeking through. Go and get this disc, or buy it for someone who doesn't think he likes modern tonal music." --Haldeman, ARG
