Notes & Reviews:

"Much of what Tobias Picker does sounds and feels familiar. It's the attitude that begins to make the difference. In 'Keys to the City' - his 1982 centennial tribute fo the Brooklyn Bridge - the piece is held taut (a bit like the bridge's steel cabling) by a series of interlocking 12-tone rows. But they're catchy tone rows - that's the difference. They strive to engage. Attitude, you see." - Edward Seckerson, Gramophone
