Reviews

Records International - June 1999

"The longest work here, Phillips' string quartet, is a very fine piece, most idiomatically written for the ensemble (meaning, it is hard to imagine it translating well to another medium), and progressing from a serious and intense opening via an utterly hushed and withdrawn second movement, towards the close of which the clouds suddenly lift, allowing the finale to take us on a wild ride in the utmost high spirits. The Beck, though instrumental, has a discursive, monologue like quality, suggesting the texts on which the works are based . Miller's Duo is also tautly argued and filled with event and drama. Epstein's variations use a palindromic cell in a process-music context. The disc ends with Eidschun's wildly energetic Bantam Masai, for a really odd ensemble, imaginatively used."
