"...fascinating passage in which a lyrical duet for trumpet and 'cello was accompanied by jagged cacophony from the piano and percussion..."

--Allen Hughes, New York Times, May 7, 1972

"Pointillistic and shadowy detail applied to a mini-orchestra of trumpet, cello, percussion, and two pianos. The concentration of the material and the flitting aspects of the timbre play are intensely articulated."

--Arthur Cohn, A Guide to Recorded Music, p.428

"The score is very clearly marked, a helpful aid, as this composition is very complex. The style is quite percussive, yet there seems to be a general flow to the work. Very sensitive and delicate musical fragments appear."

--Robert Levy, The Brass World, vol. 8, No. 2
