Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
New York Times (Publisher) (6/18/00, p.31) - "...Mr. Smith's mastery is reason enough to listen...A high point is the G major Partita, whose eight movements include an impressive Toccata and Fugue. Such music should keep posterity from forgetting Weiss any time soon."
