“Colorful new works.” Gramophone. 

“Illuminating, entrancing recital…Muradian’s concertos [are] a real treasure-trove to be mined…Kosin’s movements are quite lovely—delicate and alluring…Biggs’ work deserves the widest possible exposure…LaTraille’s Quintet [gives us] scintillating, enjoyable music that enhances not only listener pleasure but intellectual stimulation as well. Who says modern music was stale? This release proves them wrong!” American Record Guide

“Christ’s musicianship is unequivocally dead-on, and the same can be said for his colleagues.” Fanfare

“The oboe’s many facets are explored in colourful and listener-friendly ways…Muradian’s three movements abound in lively and lyrical writing that lends itself beautifully to this intimate setting. Kosins’ Rendezvous and Dreams [has] considerable panache…Biggs trips the international light fantastic to vibrant effect. LaTraille whips up spicy melodic and rhythmic ingredients.”  Gramophone
