James A. Altena
Fanfare, February 2016

A piece that stands out for its sheer oddity is the Capriccio Sopra’ il Cucu (modeled on an eponymous work by Girolamo Frescobaldi), in which the two-note call of the cuckoo bird is repeated no less than 203 times within its miniature 2:24 compass, while elaborate filigree accompaniment is skillfully woven around it. (Amazingly, it avoids sounding monotonous.) © 2016 Fanfare Read complete review
