Notes & Reviews:

"... Babbitt fans will have been anxiously awaiting the return of this important 1996 recording (March/April 1997) of Babbitt's later works for one and two players, many of them played by the musicians they were written for... A composer couldn't ask for a more talented and committed group of players than these, and the intimate format of the pieces really lays their talents bare. Helpful, accessible, and lively notes by Babbitt's student Joseph Dubile (an eminent music scholar in his own right) round out the package." -Quinn, ARG
