Two delightful chamber works by the eminent Canadian composer John Weinzweig are featured on this recording, both of which highlight the more humourous and intimate side of Weinzweig’s music making.
« The sense of ‘presence’ is so vivid in some of the works (Weinzweig’s Contrasts, for example) that one can easily imagine live artists playing in one’s living room. »
– Robert Markow, High Fidelity
« John Weinzweig’s Contrasts for guitar [is] an interconnecting web of jazz, rhythmic cycles and 12-tone method which really delights. »
