BBC Music Magazine: Best of Year



Stefan Wolpe is one of the few 20th century composers to forge a truly communicative, even appealing atonal music language. I can’t imagine a better way to explore his unique sound world than this superb disc.” - CD Review

Stefan Wolpe’s technically daunting music receives impeccable performances on a new CD.” - The Dallas Morning News

Paul Zinman’s taping of the Quintet with Voice is very good indeed. I hear Peter Serkin’s part as exemplary. Baritone Jan Opalach, whom I’ve long admired, handles his difficult lines with customary aplomb.” - Fanfare
