Notes & Reviews:

"Rautavaara's work, 'True & False Unicorn', revised in 2000, is a big, colorful set of scenes for chorus, reciters, and orchestra that holds the attention and makes a notable impression, though its over-the-top confessional content might be a bit much for some tastes. There is certainly some beautiful and touching music here, particularly when Rautavaara's Vaughan Williams-style choral writing is on display." - Gimbel, ARG
