Canadian violin virtuoso Jasper Wood champions the music of composer Andrew Paul MacDonald on this new release of music for solo violin and violin with piano. Four substantial works all draw their inspiration from Greece and Greek mythology and send the listener on a musical odyssey of intense feeling and richness.

« Two things make this disc by the outstanding young Canadian a must-hear. Wood has it all. He makes music with strength and interpretative flair, but he has also picked music that allows him to shine and to make the Canadian composer whose work he’s chosen shine with him. »

– Bill Rankin, Edmonton Journal

« The wonderful young Canadian virtuoso violinist Jasper Wood continues his trailblazing ways…Wood’s dedication to modern music is laudable. »

– Larry Beckwith, Wholenote – Disc of the Month, October 2004

« It’s a fascinating CD. The intellectual content is there should one wish to delve into it but the music is welcoming purely as music, gradually insinuating itself into the consciousness as it is heard. Take your time getting to know it: the rewards for the patient listener are manifold. »
– Robert Jordan, Opus
