[Regarding Dan Visconti's Ramshackle Songs]:
Visconti has produced a lovely work, full of resplendent flowing melodic gestures that are interwoven into a satisfying whole ... I was moved by both the piece and the performance, and I believe you will be too.
[Regarding Stravinsky's Three Pieces]:
The proto-Minimalistic Three Pieces ... would seem a good complement to the post-Minimalistic work by Volans. The Kontras Quartet's approach works beautifully.
The Kontras Quartet has a distinctive and enjoyable musical personality, and this well-recorded CD [Origins] presents them in a wonderful light. This disc is a delight all around, and is accordingly warmly recommended.
