Notes & Reviews:

"This is the second Naxos CD devoted to the music of George Rochberg to appear in less than a year, and the second to include 'Black Sounds'. It's a powerful score and one representative of its composer. Indeed, it is a pared-down version of a work for a larger ensemble of winds and percussion, entitled 'Apocalyptica', written in homage to Edgard Varese, and Rochberg does an impressive job of creating an echt-Varesian soundworld without blatant plagiarism." Farach-Colton, Gramophone
