"...a one-movement work with tremendous variety and energy... there is a good deal of original and appealing material. Each of its 10 sections brings something different - pizzicato, mutes, a fugue, cadenzas. Finally, at the end, the theme upon which the variations are based appears for the first time, in a slow and slightly weepy form." -Peter Dobrin, Philadelphia Inquirer.
