Review By Olin Chism,The Dallas Morning News,

"Jeno Jando, music of Bela Bartok, Out of Doors (Naxos): Rarely has a composer looked less like his music than Bartok. Photographs portray him as a slight, shy and rather apprehensive man who apparently never smiled. But start the first track of this fine recording and you hear something else. The pounding bass chords of "With Drums and Pipes" suggest that he still possessed the genes of his ancient and wild Magyar ancestors.

But Bartok was a multifaceted composer and the 27 tracks on the release represent a wide variety of moods. The first of Four Dirges is not so much sad as atmospheric -- reminiscent, in spirit, of Debussy.


Review By Elizabeth Roche,The Daily Telegraph (Australia),January 2004

"This superb disc of music by one of Spain's most talented early 16th century composers is exactly the sort of boost that the less well-known repertoire needs in its search for a place in today's CD collection. It is in every way a model of what a recording of Renaissance polyphony ought to be...The all male vocal ensemble sings with enormous conviction as well as firm control of rhythm and phrasing. Combining the voices with energetically played sackbuts produces a rich and dark-hued sound that feels authentically Spanish, and does full justice to this very fine music."
