Notes and Editorial Reviews

"These are beautifully refined performances of late Cage pieces involving saxophones...and the ensemble playing is remarkable, even telepathic." -- Clive Bell, The Wire, May 2002

"Uli Krieger's colours are absolutely flawless, his use of technique never overwhelming but always in line with the necessary attention to every detail. This is a superb recording!" -- Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes, December 2002
