Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...It's always a pleasure...to hear the "Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano", each version differing according to the performer's customizing of the instrument; while Malcolm Goldstein and Matthias Kaul's album of violin and percussion pieces includes beautifully restrained, spacious versions of "Ryoanji" and "Music for Two"..."
