Stereophile reviews Lisa Bielawa: In Medias Res
March 1, 2011 — Lisa Bielawa is a major new voice in music, and this two-disc set contains some of the most blindingly beautiful and original works I have heard in a while. Time Out New York describes Bielawa as possessing a "prodigious gift for mingling persuasive melodicism with organic experimentation," and that well captures my feelings. Her In medias res (Concerto for Orchestra) combines traditional harmonies with shifting tonalities.

American Record Guide reviews Steven Mackey: Dreamhouse
March 1, 2011 — Steven Mackey's Dreamhouse (2003) is and odd assemblage dealing with, as the title suggests, the building of a perfect home, with a libretto filled with architectural details improvised on by Mr Mackey and tenor and fellow librettist Rinde Eckert. In addition to Mr Eckert, who sings not only as tenor but with falsetto, and functions as speaking actor as well, the work is scored for a small Hilliard Ensemble-type vocal consort, an electric guitar quartet, and large orchestra. The music is varied in its influences, but is unambiguously American in tone and aesthetic stance.

She even modeled it for me in her bedroom.
