Review By George Adams,American Record Guide,March 2013

This most recent record by Alarm Will Sound is typical of the ensemble in its precision and clarity.

Though most of the music on the record is a mixing of musical styles, the four-movement Canzonas is particularly striking for its delivery of idioms all relatable under the label “American”.

Other works are just as eclectic…

Convincing and effective performance of music with this much variety and scope by Alarm Will Sound is not only remarkable, but it brings Bermel’s demanding music to the height of its potential. © 2013 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Review By Laurence Vittes,Gramophone,February 2013

American composer/clarinettist Derek Bermel and chamber band Alarm Will Sound show their classical music counterparts just how rich and diverse an orchestral musical palette can be and how fully it offers classically trained players the chance to show off not only their chops but their expressive skills as well.
