New York Times review!

Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times reviewed my string quartet, as part of his article on the Flux Quartet's recent program at Barge Music!
Tommasini clearly appreciated David Lang's "harmonically diffuse" piece perhaps the most of any on the program, but i'll take his description of mine as a "raw, wailing, coloristic piece" with an "organic sweep"--no problem.
