This is an enjoyable hour’s worth of Crumb, with the visual element providing an extra, possibly required, dimension of understanding and enjoyment, especially when the composer himself launches body as well as soul with full enthusiasm into his occasional percussion contributions.” - BBC Music Magazine

All the performances are beyond criticism. Audio and video quality are exquisite. This is a superlative production on every count.” - Fanfare
