"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
