"A resplendent account, brilliantly motivated by Sorrell 
and performed with vibrant attention to dramatic detail. 
In short, a thriller from first note to last."

THE PLAIN DEALER

The exoticism of the East meets the structure of the West in this masterpiece. When AF introduced it to Northeast Ohio, THE PLAIN DEALER called it “the smash hit of the classical music season.” Sorrell’s interpretation has won international praise thanks to the European release of AF’s CD recording. A national tour follows the local performances.
