Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
BBC Music (5/98, p.60) - Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 5 (out of 5) - "...With...expert and committed instrumental playing by Critical Band, vivid sound, and helpful notes, this is a disc which recommends itself to those already interested in Xenakis's music, and for others would make an excellent introduction to his uniquely pungent sound-world."
