Review:
"Overall, it is a disc of lively, imaginative, and propulsive work, all of which bodes well for a substantial career. ...The performances are top-notch throughout (clearly the performers are enjoying the task at hand)..." (Fanfare)

"The performers really dig into the music on Dark Dances, and it fits the music well. Even at their most tranquil these four pieces by John Allemeier express a certain vitality, and they are well served here by the players." (American Record Guide)
