"I think this disc will be of greatest interest to players of double reed instruments, but it's good music for everyone." (Fanfare)

“…I am delighted by these musicians’ ability to bring to life such different styles. They seem committed to the promotion of new music and exceptionally qualified for the job. If not for the variety, then for the music, but definitely for the sake of the artistry on this album, I recommend that all reed players add this to their collection.” (American Record Guide)
