"...it’s hauntingly melodic and fun,
dancing and almost running its way forward.
There may even be a little Zappa in the syncopation
and in the whimsical handling of modes."
- Marc Medwin, Fanfare Magazine
"There is an intricacy to the players' interaction that seems,
to the present writer at least, to invoke or reflect some physical design.
Ensemble between the two players needs to be particularly tight in this piece,
and the result is indeed magical"
- Colin Clarke, Fanfare Magazine
- Ellyce Field, Detroit Free Press
". . . clever, funky, jazzy and virtuosic"
- Geraldine Freeman, Daily Gazette
"compelling and adventurous"
"The most boisterous and ungrounded music of the night,
it started off in a bumping, rather brutalist manner.
Eventually things settled into a more
lyric and consonant expansiveness,
highlighted by a sweet, extended quartet
for the principal strings."
- Joseph Dalton, Times Union
" . . . explores a reverent sound world
that hovers just above the brink of silence."
- Maggie Molloy, Second Inversion
" . . . a gamut of emotions is expressed during its eight minutes,"movingly austere..."
from reverence and supplication
to mournfulness despair."
