"This CD takes us on a foray into the land of shadows -- its compositions make remarkable use of light and shadow effects while simultaneously recalibrating the relationship between ensemble and soloist in unique ways. Michael Jarrell's violin concerto refracts the solo instrument's line through the prism of the ensemble. Stefano Gervasoni's concerto for double bass is like a dream full of odd sound forms -- until the alarm goes off. Taking an (early-morning) look in the mirror, the solo flute in Durand's Ombre/Miroir finds itself still faced with shadowy creatures as well. In Brian Ferneyhough's Shadowtime VI, the angel of history appears and in verses by poet Charles Bernstein, he shows his gloomy face."
