Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
Fanfare (5-6/98, p.248) - "...Karen Walwyn, who is on the faculty at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, gets through this technically demanding program with aplomb. Her rhythmic nimbleness is especially notable. Here is a collection of composers who deserve a higher profile."
