Notes and Editorial Reviews

Carlos Micháns is a genuine cosmopolitan. He was born in Argentina, has family ties in Great Britain, the Basque Country, and the United States, makes his home in the Netherlands, and travels around the world. Hardly dogmatic, he joins together all sorts of influences to form a very individual personal style of great expressive power. The Utrecht String Quartet expands to five and eight musicians to introduce this composer to listening audiences with his Oboe Quintet, Piano Quintet, and Divertimento for String Octet.
