David Starobin is an exceptional guitarist. Here he’s performing music he knows intimately created by his friend. So yes, if you enjoy contemporary music or classical guitar music, this is the disc to get.” - Charlottesville Classical

Throughout this disc Poul Ruders has paired instruments that you would think would not go together well, but he shows that the unexpected can be quite beautiful. He is helped here by David Starobin, the backbone of this recording, and a roster of highly talented musicians, all of whom perform to the best of their abilities and prove excellent partners to Starobin. An important addition to the growing catalogue of Poul Ruders music.” - MusicWeb International

Starobin’s guitar playing is, as always, world class, and the same can be said for oboist Liang Wang, who possesses exquisite sound, gorgeous phrasing, and velvety legato. Listening to these two players is an all-too-brief treat. Recorded sound and liner notes are first rate.” - Soundboard
