Gabel – Through A Gentle Rain “…Japanese stringed koto in delicate conversation with alternating timbres of flute, piccolo and alto flute…”
Andres – Narthex “…scenes from the Old Testament…striking series of vignettes…”Fish – Pictures of Miro “…Fish’s orchestration is wonderfully transparent and his melodic outlines often very French…includes more hard-edged material as he responds to some of Miro’s more dramatic canvases…whimsy and lyricism with intensity and humor…”
Andreae – Quartet for Flute, Violin, Viola and Cello “…richly expressive…gifted composer with a penchant for lush romantic though never over-indulgent textures…”
Brinckman – Glass Sky “…a stunning evocation of arid landscapes and ambient birdsong…”
Reynolds – Cloven Dreams “…high-spirited and dark scenes – vivid and affecting homages to exterior and interior world of the artist Helen Martins…”
