Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim
The New York Times, February 2015

A lullaby for percussion quartet? Well, there is more than an ounce of humor in this compelling recording by the feisty Los Angeles Percussion Quartet, along with colorful, atmospheric and, yes, supremely melodic music by an array of composers. The album’s crystal-clear sound brings to life the rich textures created from a rainbow of traditional and found instruments, especially in the mesmerizing title track by Shaun Naidoo. © 2015 The New York Times

…a program as interesting, expertly played, and well recorded as this is a definite keeper. © 2015 The Absolute Sound Read complete review

Audiophile Audition, November 2014

This stunning recording, especially in multi-channel versions, simply transports you to the hall with the musicians. The subtleties and the impact of the instruments is palpably there.

Listen to, and enjoy this disc. Highly recommended! © 2014 Audiophile Audition Read complete review

Classical Candor, October 2014

The performances include a wide variety of percussion instruments, with the LAPQ playing them with consummate skill.

The sound from the CD alone appears state-of-the-art. The all-important transient response is very quick, combined with a wide dynamic range and strong impact. The instruments stand out clearly and sharply, as though they were in the room with you. From the Blu-ray disc one gets the additional ambience of the surround channels and presumably greater definition from the higher bit rates involved. © 2014 Classical Candor Read complete review
