Lynn René Bayley
Fanfare, January 2013

This unusual disc, titled The Uncertainty Principle, features works for cello, recorder quartet, and singers by Russian composer Alexandre Danilevski…it…opened up into one of the most lovely and imaginative works I had ever heard…Lauda is an extraordinarily interesting piece combining Renaissance plainchant, Japanese-styled recorder lines, and Meredith Monk-like droning. In short, it was absolutely mesmerizing; and, happily, soprano Tóth has a pure, clear, ear-ravishing voice of great effectiveness.

Revelation is a 12-minute piece for unaccompanied cello: melancholy yet lyrical, again in a pseudo-Oriental fashion, the instrument playing long, arcing lines and ending on an unresolved cadence…

…the enthusiasm that they put into the music is there to hear, and enjoy. This is an interesting, provocative, and fascinating CD, and I highly recommend it to anyone wishing to explore new musical paths. © 2013 Fanfare Read complete review
