Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
Fanfare (5-6/98, p.193) - "This is about as safe as the avant-garde gets. All three works have been repeatedly listener-tested and are guaranteed not to cause soiling of the furniture or cracking of the plaster....If you like the three works together, you will find [the Turovskys'] performances more than adequate..."
BBC Music (3/98, p.70) - Performance: 4 (out of 5), Sound: 4 (out of 5) - "...The Schnittke and Pärt are smoothly given....In the Concerto grosso, three female soloists perform a winning account of a resonant score..."
