Notes & Reviews:

"Best of the works here is the 20-minute sonata from 1965, which ends with a brief Allegretto that abounds in macabre humor. Musical Toys is a children's piece in the vein of Schumann's Scenes from Childhood, and a nice introduction to her style. The most recent work is a lean, mean Invention in two-voice counterpoint that scampers up and down maniacally until it closes effectively on the lowest note of the keyboard. Diana Baker's tone is sparkling, never ugly or brassy, and she navigates her way through Gubaidulina's muscular virtuosity with the finesse of a Russian ballerina. An important recording." -ARG
