REVIEWS
CD Review in The WholeNote
Gramophone Magazine March 2015

“It is also extremely difficult music to play well, and the members of the collective are to be commended for their ability to both cope with the exceptional technical demands and make something coherent out of it. This is a fascinating disc of modern music, played by musicians who seem to me deeply committed to this ideal.”Lynne René Bayley – Fanfare Magazine May/June 2015

“I won’t speak for the composers, but these performances seem to do everything for the music than can possibly be done. No one can fault The Nu:BC Collective for lacking a commitment to modern Canadian music, or for not giving the music the full measure of its considerable talent.” – Raymond Tuttle – Fanfare Magazine May/June 2015

“This enterprising disc of new music is impeccably and beautifully presented.
This is a marvelous exploration of compelling contemporary music. Ensuring production standards are high gives the impression that the music presented is being fully honored; the act of listening to the disc confirms that this is in fact the case. Recommended to those with an insatiable appetite for the new.” – Colin Clarke – Fanfare Magazine May/June 2015
