Press Quotes      Deutsch
“His three-movement, 20-minute work is a reminiscence of the hopes and anxieties of his student years…The outer movements, Daydreams and Dawn, are cast in consonant but freely modulating chord progressions, with achingly beautiful solo lines darting through the thick textures. Even the central Nightmares movement, though darker and more freely dissonant, often has a lush quality.”
New York Times
