"Excellent pieces by Tania Leon."
Vital repertoire in fantastic performances

"This disc contains music of five African-American composers who prominently figure in the American music scene. The names are perhaps unfamiliar at first, but after listening to this disc I found myself searching for more recordings of their music.None of the pieces, although composed in the 20th century, are harsh sounding. William Brown is a convincing soloist in both his works. However, my favorite piece is the Tania Leon work from which the entire disc takes it title. This is truly virtuosic music that actually has a purpose beyond its own virtuosity, and is quite a thrill to listen to.The performances are excellent. Hopefully this will lead to more recordings of important repertoire like this!"
