Album Review
Chauncy Sunderland
Reviewed 2006-12-12 
All super stuff, without reservation. Unfortunately a lot of it is very quiet and sparse (especially the Nono & Webern which are excellent) to the point that it is a bit testy to play on the air.

15. An amazing composition. This is just an excerpt. There is also a nice, more subdued version by the LaSalle quartet.
18. Rihm is dense, and to my ear, abstractly quoting Mahler.
19. Is fairly full.
21. This Schoenberg piece is very classical.
