Stephen J. Nereffid
Music is Good, January 2016

Favourite classical albums of 2015 #2

Twelve new pieces (plus an extract from Steve Reich’s The Cave) in which the composer makes use of a piece of previously recorded material: from John Cage speaking (Florent Ghys) to Chicago street musicians (Anna Clyne) to blades being sharpened (David Lang). Despite the varied nature of the fare on offer, it all comes together wonderfully to make a proper album. © 2016 Music is Good

Audiophile Audition, July 2015

An impressive compilation of some of the most creative and eclectic composers of today.

The concept to this dual audio-video release is fascinating in its creativity and really begs the bulk of the attention; some excellent and thought provoking short works notwithstanding.

You may be pleasantly surprised. © 2015 Audiophile Audition Read complete review

Much of this music is remarkable; all of it is well worth hearing, and the album should be considered an essential purchase for all library collections. © 2015 Baker & Taylor CD Hotlist Read complete review
