"The first half of the disc is devoted to established works by Brouwer, Villa-Lobos, and several more of the usual suspects, while the second half is a delightful flurry of new commissions from some of our liveliest contemporary composers, such as Howard Skempton, Errolyn Wallen, and Graham Fitkin." - INTERNATIONAL RECORD REVIEW
