CHARLES WUORINEN--MUSIC OF TWO DECADES, Vol. I.
"The disc is drawn primarily from Nonesuch originals recorded
in 1971 and 1974. In addition to restoring some major Wuorinen back into
circulation, they serve as reminders of what a wonderfully imaginative label
Nonesuch was under the administration of the visionary Teresa Sterne."
-Benjamin Pernick in Fanfare
"Charles Wuorinen's works from the '60s and '70s, most (but
not all) reissued from Nonesuch LPs, in authoritative (if not definitive)
performances, and superb recorded sound."
-Mark L. Lehman in American Record Guide
