Review:
"…Curt Cacioppo is a daring and vividly imaginative composer. I have had the pleasure of hearing much of his music over the years (he was a long-time member of the Haverford College music faculty, where is now emeritus) and occasionally of corresponding with him. In addition to his work reflecting his love of ancient art and his Italian heritage, he has also created fascinating music derived from Native American culture. This bold collection of works is an excellent introduction to his artistry. Performances are consistently excellent." (Fanfare)
