Notes and Editorial Reviews

To borrow some terminology from film criticism, Nonesuch's new album of music by George Perle is something of a sleeper - a modest production that is immodestly rewarding. (...) Although each of these works is informed by the composer's 50-year study of 12-tone music, this should not suggest that they are inaccessible to the general public. (...) One is impressed by the liveliness of the composer's mind, and his sense of musical balance. (...) The performances, by Mr. Goode and the Music Today Ensemble, under the direction of Gerard Schwarz, are stylish, witty, energetic and authoritative.

-- Tim Page, The New York Times [4/27/1986]
