Jack Sullivan
American Record Guide, September 2012

Sorrow is Not Melancholy…is an eloquent threnody for strings, packing a great deal of mournful emotion into its 11 minutes before its final sigh. A piquant contrast is Fire Dances…full of haunting Eastern colors…Drattell wrote this one-movement work…for David Shifrin, who plays it here with uninhibited passion. The orchestra has a great deal to say as well, and the Seattle Symphony under Gerard Schwarz…comes through splendidly…

A more sinister note is struck in both Lilith, a two-movement portrait of the mythical vampire seductress, and The Fire Within, a concertante piece for flute and orchestra played with intensity by Scott Goff…the lyrical sections have an Eastern sensuousness…This is raw, compelling music… © 2012 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide online
