Notes & Reviews:

"Thomas Whitman's Piano Quartet is a very finely crafted, appealing work with more than enough engaging melodic ideas to sustain the listener's interest and justify the composer's choice of medium. It has three movements and employs cyclical form, but at the same time it manages to absorb its traditional elements into an obviously contemporary idiom. Melinda Wagner's Romanz with Faux Variations is a single-movement piano trio in several loosely connected episodes. The cute title basically says it all: the episodes aren't really variations in the strict sense, but it all hangs together and features some very exciting ensemble writing in the process the performances by the Network for New Music are totally dedicated, polished, and very well recorded." -Classics Today
