REVIEWS
“[Bradshaw’s music is] rhythmically sharp and nervous. It reminds me of Lukas Foss in his neoclassic phase… [In Argersinger's Dream of Venus] Wood and Councell's synchronization astounded me. I have no idea how they locked on. It's a beautiful, poetic piece, rare, may I add, in its genre… Peter Wolf plays with real musical understanding, and he's lucky in his collaborators.”
 
Steve Schwartz, ClassicalNet - August 2011
"Wood is a tasteful player with a consistently full, pure, and pleasant tone quality. This is a fine program, well prepared and executed."
