Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Herrmann’s Psycho, scored for string orchestra, is a tricky work for any ensemble. Maestro Kapp’s virtuosos tear into the composer’s concert suite with breathtaking ferocity and precision. It is one of the best performances of this music on records." - American Record Guide – January 2006 "Herrmann’s Psycho, scored for string orchestra, is a tricky work for any ensemble.
